Traffic was delayed on the rail and street traffic was detoured at the 5th Avenue crossing on Wednesday, Sept. 3rd while CN crews repaired the crossing. An employee on site said the rails were being slightly lifted. CN spokesperson Emily Hamer said the work was done as part of CN’s regular track maintenance program, and was scheduled in coordination with the Village of Valemount. She says additional surfacing work – paving with asphalt – will be done in the next few days.
