The Ministry of Transportation is providing an update on the status of Mabel Lake Road east of Enderby.

The road was washed out near Kingfisher Friday morning and was reopened Sunday.

"The ministry will continue with scheduled intermittent openings on the temporary access road while repairs are underway," it states in a release.

"It is open to single alternating traffic on a scheduled basis, which will be in place 24 hours a day until further notice. We will review this again as final repairs proceed over the coming days. Traffic control and creek spotters will remain in place throughout our operations."

Access is restricted to passenger cars, pickup trucks and lighter commercial vehicles only, with no large commercial combination units allowed at this time.

The next steps are to re-establish the road at its previous alignment, making sure the road is rebuilt to proper standards," states the ministry.
