Ministry officials have advised that once snow levels are “gradeable” the summit area will be “graded” (as opposed to “snow plowed”).
Current estimates put this at some time next week (June 9 on). Information provided puts snow at approximately 2-3 feet over a 3 km stretch. As yet there are no confirmed reports of any vehicles driving the route. Let us know if you hear of anyone making it across and send some photos to email@example.com
We have been unable to confirm any other information regarding the Spring Opening of the Hurley this year or in future years.
MLA Tegart has been requested to meet via teleconference or in the community several times in the last few weeks and to date has not responded to requests.
Ongoing communication with your MLA’s is critical. If you have received email responses, please follow up. Phoning the MLAs is also very important. Keep the pressure on to get the Hurley plowed for this year and future years!
