The Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations & Rural Development is planning a capital upgrade of several bridges and crossing structures on the San Josef Main FSR during the summers of 2018 and 2019. In 2018 we are planning to replace 7 bridges and one embedded CMP between 14.7km and 16km.
The road will be closed for bridge construction during the following periods:
- Monday June 18- Thursday June 21 2018
- Monday June 25- Thursday June 28 2018
- Tuesday Sept 4- Friday Sept 72018
- Tuesday Sept 11- Friday Sept 14 2018
We are not planning any road closures in the months of July or August, however if weather conditions in June are too wet, we may need to shut down during July. We will not impact any long weekends.
Please share this information with logging foremen, contractor reps, TSL Licensees, park operators and the general public.
The Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations & Rural Development will be posting signs as well as placing the above shut down dates in the North Island Gazette newspaper, and on CBC Radio and CFNI Radio.
The scheduled shut downs for 2019 will be communicated in the same manner during the winter of 2018/19.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact The Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations & Rural Development Engineering reps Sasha.Ward@gov.bc.ca or Alan.Bratosh@gov.bc.ca.
Thank you for your patience during this capital road upgrade.
