Dear Hemlock Valley Community,

The washout recovery work on Hemlock Valley Rd between Morris Valley Rd and 2 Km is nearing completion and is anticipated to be wrapped up sometime next week.

Starting on Wednesday Nov 24, the ministry is undertaking culvert improvements along the gravel portion of Hemlock Valley Rd. There will be a total of nine sites intended for these improvements. Construction duration is twelve work days. Included in the twelve work days is eleven days of road closure.

During construction the construction zone (i.e. the site of each culvert) will be closed for a duration of four hours staring at 10am and ending at 2pm. The closure is required to expediate the culvert replacement and to complete the work before Sasquatch Mountain Resort opens  for the season on Dec 11.

During the closure times, crews will have road plates at site to accommodate any emergency vehicle travel in the event of an emergency. These roads plates can be installed across the construction zone within 10-15 minutes to allow safe passage of the emergency vehicle(s).

Crews will also ensure that winter maintenance is not affected.
