Signs on the Hurley Road

Posted by on November 4, 2013

Lots of people have noticed the new signs and information kiosk on the Hurley.  New signs include the Wildlife Management Unit ID, No Moose/Elk and Grizzly Hunting sign and MOT/Interior Roads signs.   The new information kiosk is one of 4 Gateway Kiosks placed in and around the Bridge River Valley to provide maps and other local information for visitors to the area.   The kiosk has been put in place but the map and information content is still to come.  Look for it at the East Hurley split next summer and stop to take a look!  Some older, hard to read signage is being removed.

The Hurley is closed to most vehicle traffic.  Winter driving conditions are now in effect on the Hurley Road and you should only attempt to drive the Hurley  if you are prepared and experienced.    If you make the choice to drive the Hurley make sure you are prepared with Winter driving skills, 4 x4 truck  and good winter tires are essential for travel at this time of the year.  Chains and a survival/safety kit are good things to carry in your truck.  Be prepared for self rescue!  Conditions can change at anytime up there.   Last report 30cm of snow at the top with slippery conditions.   Most people should consider taking the alternate route to the Bridge River Valley via Lillooet and Road 40.  It’s a beautiful scenic drive so take your time and enjoy the drive!
