Cumberland, BC – Dunsmuir Avenue will be closed from 1st Street to Egremont Street for paving on August 14th from 10 am to 4 pm, and on August 15th from 7 am to 6 pm.

150 metres of Dunsmuir Avenue will be resurfaced and repaved, which will address winter road damage. Work is weather-dependent.

Traffic can detour around the closure by using Derwent Avenue, which is accessible from Sutton Avenue on the east side, and 1st Street on the west side. Please use caution when taking this detour, which goes past the children’s playground at No. 6 Mine Park. See attached map for details.

Residents are asked to refrain from parking on this section of Dunsmuir Avenue on August 14 and 15. The parking lots at the Cultural Centre and Recreation Centre will be open. Pedestrians are asked to use the crossings at Egremont Street and 1st Street, rather than crossing mid-block. Please pay attention to road and sidewalk signage for your safety.

Leslie Baird,

Mayor, The Village of Cumberland
