Did I not say somewhere that the sea wall still looked pretty sketchy and it didn’t seem like it was ready to re-open? What a crappy “I told you so” moment, the sea wall is closed again.
Heavy snow yesterday and rainfall today has resulted in another closure of the Stanley Park Seawall. Park Board staff are consulting with engineers after a 20 foot wide mudslide occurred around 10 this morning near Third Beach.
Stanley Park Maintenance Supervisor Eric Meaghr says it’s a bit discouraging after so much work this fall. “We had some feelings we may have issues. It’s the first big test of the area and sure enough we did have a slip off the sandstone face today.” The slide came down just south of the lighthouse, just a few hours after an inspection where they actually considered closing the Seawall for the day.
Early reports predict the Seawall will be closed for at least several days. [News1130]
If only we would have spent the restoration money actually restoring the park instead of paving more roads and making more parking lots.
