About six weeks after it was closed for frantic dike construction as the Assninboine River rose in Brandon, Grand Valley Road will finally re-open to traffic on Tuesday, Aug. 12 at 8 a.m.
The road was closed July 2 to hold back rising floodwaters from Kirkcaldy Drive and 18th Street North.
The city says that they've conpleted the removal of the dike, and are storing the clay and rock nearby for any future use. However, the road underneath the dike required repairs. Although that's been done, no traffic will be allowed on the road until Tuesday so that the concrete can properly cure.
