Elevated runnoff in the Shields Valley in the spring of 2018 resulted in channel migration of the Shields River upstream of the Fiddle Creek Road crossing which ultimately resulted in significant lost off road section requiring closure of the roadway.
Temporary repairs were completed when the high water receeded and conditions stabilzied allowing the road to reopen.
