City crews in Prince George are still working on a fix for the damaged culvert on Victoria Street.
In a news release, the city says a five-metre section of a damaged storm drain that destabilized part of the street last week, south of Milburn Avenue.
Once complete, crews will begin to backfill at the site. As a result, Victoria Street will remain closed between McCullagh Avenue and Milburn Avenue until the excavation area has been repaved.
The city says the road should be reopened by the end of this week.
It's believed the damaged culvert was installed in the late 1960s with the operation being slowed down because of rain and groundwater filling the excavation site and needed to be removed.
