Upon confirmation that the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure continues to actively monitor the area surrounding the Old Fort Road where the landslide occurred, the geotechnical consultants are satisfied that evacuation alerts can be removed at this time. As new information comes forward, it will be
assessed to determine whether changes to evacuation alerts or orders can or need to be made. We thank the residents of Old Fort for their patience during this difficult time.
