Public Notice-Sinkhole at Airport Dr/50 Ave N



Sinkhole at Airport Drive and 50 Avenue North

(across from the Post Office)

Please be advised that there is a sinkhole on the corner of Airport Drive and 50th Avenue North.  The hole is approximately four feet deep and has undermined a portion of sidewalk out to the curb.  The area has been barricaded off and we ask the public’s cooperation in staying away from this area.


We are currently investigating the cause and to determine the source of the water, however there is little that can be done while it is raining. In addition, there is a heavy rainfall warning in effect for this evening (June 15). Our priorities at this time are to ensure public safety and to secure the area to prevent further damage during tonight’s anticipated rainfall.  When the rain stops, we will be able to reassess the situation.  We will continue to keep the public up-dated as we progress.


An acknowledgement goes out to the public for bringing this matter to our attention, which enabled our crews to act quickly.


Should you have any questions or concerns, contact Public Works at 250-774-2541 Ext. 2090.
