Heavy rainfall, water saturated soil and debris were likely all factors to the Ellis Creek Road damage, Public Works Commissioner Gary Hammond said.

He said the damage is about mid-way on the road, which will be closed for seven to 10 days as repairs take place. Traffic is being rerouted to Crandall and Oak Street roads.
