Motorists on the Port Mellon Highway have been forced to use a detour over the past week, following a washout at Dakota Creek.

Heavy rain on the night of Oct. 21 caused a debris flow that plugged the culverts and washed out the highway.

Howe Sound Pulp and Paper used water taxis and buses to get their crews in and out until the detour was established.

The repairs were delayed by more heavy rain the following days.
