Between KM 6 & 7 just past the Gwenyth Lake turnoff on the Hurley is what started out to be a big mud hole . This place is now becoming quite dangerous as it is has several deep holes ,although dry, and people who come up on it too fast get a nasty surprise. Ministry officials have been advised and they promise to get the forest company who is logging in the area to get it fixed.
Log hauling began on the Hurley down to Rd. 40 again yesterday, watch out for logging trucks and be careful!
MOFLNRO Squamish is working to grading their end (switchbacks) before July long weekend although it may happen immediately following.
Positive news in that they intend to hire the same type of heavier equipment as did the job in October. The other piece of positive news is that the section that never saw a grader last year, between Tenquille Lake Rd. and KM 19 marker will be graded.
There was confusion last year as to whose jurisdiction it was in. This has been solved. The middle piece of the road is in as poor condition as we have seen in a number of years. This is primarily due to the classification it receives by the Ministry of Transportation. The maintenance of the road is in the Interior Roads contract and is classed as a “once a year” Grade. We all know this isn’t enough. In previous years under MOF it was graded two times a year which ensured it didn’t deteriorate as much. Ministry of Transportation officials are cooperative and attempting to see if and how we can get some gravel on this section of the Road too.
NOW it is your turn, if you have driven the middle piece of the Hurley River Rd. in the last two weeks and have something to say about it fill in the form at: http://www.interiorroads.com/pcr.php This form goes to Interior Roads management and Ministry Officials. Many elected folks are doing their best to advocate for the appropriate maintenance of this road, but it really is the public’s say that counts.
