August 9 Update

The Hurley was graded before the August long weekend but it sounds like it’s in pretty rough shape after all the peak season traffic. Be aware that there may be a flipped vehicle obstructing part of the road 7.5km on the Pemberton side.  Drive the corners with caution to avoid hitting it.
Thanks to Jesse Davidson for the latest update.  Came across a flipped vehicle today at km 7.5 on the Pemberton side. No one with the truck, hope everyone is OK. The truck is on the roadway so be cautious. Good reminder for everyone to drive safe and be prepared.

Grading Update

Thanks to Debbie Demare for the latest update and photos. Great shape from Summit down to Lillooet river FSR    I hope people use their 4 wheel drive going up hill to keep it in great shape. They have marked a culvert that is messed up at summit. Grader working at Summit on Gold Bridge side.

Thanks to Randy Perazzo and Doug Engstrom for the latest Hurley updates. The grader started yesterday from the Pemberton side and the first 4km are buff. A crew was working ahead of the grader brushing last years leaners and deadfall.

Thanks to Debbie Demare for the latest Hurley update and photo.  Potholes and wet throughout. Two mud bogs at the top getting deeper and depending on the vehicle be careful. Lillooet River FSR is in fabulous shape!

May 20 Update

Thanks to Scott Frizzell, Lisa Wagner and Jessie Davison for sending in these updates and photos!

Single lane and a bit sloppy in parts but overall an excellent drive.

The entire road is now snow and ice-free. A few wet/muddy patches near the summit but I have to say it’s a whole different road than it was on Friday!

Road was good today as we left the valley. A bit muddy at the summit in areas where the snow is melting. Switch backs down to Pemberton were a bit rough with potholes but better than expected. Lillooet Forest service was in great shape

A reminder to read and follow the rules of the road.  Headlights ON even during the daytime. If you use auto headlights your taillights don’t come on unless it’s dark out.

Drive slow and take care while passing. Please respect the equipment operators when the grading starts on the Pemberton side and give them space and slow down.

Friday May 17 Update

Lots of traffic on the Hurley today, most heading up from Pemberton.  Going down to Pemberton from the summit was icy and slippery. Raining hard at the top. The summit area is a mix of ice, snow, mud and water. 2-3km of challenging driving with 4wd and good tires needed. No grader working as of yet. Thanks to Sal DeMare for the photos and update!

Drive slow and take care while passing. Please respect the equipment operators when the grading starts on the Pemberton side and give them space and slow down.

Several vehicles have come over the Hurley already tonight.  Tom plowed out some pullouts and the road is single lanes for a few kms at the pass and 4wd is required until the snow melts. The Pemberton side is boney and rough for the first 10km then it’s pretty good to Gold Bridge. Thanks to Doug Engstrom for sending in photos of the opening conditions.  Drive slow and take care while passing. Please respect the equipment operators when the grading starts on the Pemberton side and give them space and slow down.

Opening Update #4

Tom is working on clearing snow and is making good time. He is expecting to finish late on Thursday as he is only pushing 5 feet and not the 6-8 that was expected.  Please don’t try to drive the Hurley until the work has been completed and as soon as it is done it will be posted here. Squamish Mills was delayed in grading the Pemberton side but will be starting later this week. When the road had been cleared and posted as open,  machines may still be working so please slow down and respect the workers when approaching and passing. Thanks to BJ Moore, FLNRO for keeping us updated on the progress.
