Cumberland, BC – Certain roads and trails in the Cumberland trail network will be temporarily closed this fall from October 2nd to the end of December during work to twin Cumberland’s water supply main.
The section of Spanker that parallels Davis Lake Main will be closed for the duration of construction. There will be additional temporary closures to trails in the area, including Davis Lake Main between the chlorine building and Perseverance Creek bridge.
The Village is working with the United Riders of Cumberland (UROC) to minimize impacts to trail users. Details of trail closures will be posted on the UROC Facebook page, and at the kiosk at the yellow gate.
The Village asks that trail users pay close attention to detour signage and other posted notices. Increased traffic along Davis Lake Main can be expected and trail users are reminded that the road is an active forestry road, and to yield to all service vehicles.
This work is part of improvements to Cumberland waterworks infrastructure. The 57-year-old water supply main to Cumberland will be twinned, resulting in better resiliency to Cumberland’s water supply and improved operational control. The project also includes construction of a new reservoir tank and water treatment facilities, and related site improvements.
See the attached map for more details about trails affected.
