Good news! The Hurley maintenance project will start in September. A fully executed contract for the works on the Hurley is in place and here are some details on the project. Thank you to Malcolm Schulz & Ken Conway-Brown from the Ministry of Forests, Lands & Natural Resource Operations for the updates and keeping us informed! New signs have been placed on the Hurley and unfortunately someone has already put graffiti on a sign at the summit. Please respect the work that is being done to fix the road and also the signage that is being installed..
* Project start: September 2nd
* Project completion: September 19th (approx.). I do not think the contractor will be working during the weekend, but will confirm once we have reviewed a final construction schedule.
* Project scope: to lift the road between the 18.5 km and 23 km markers (above the Tenquille turnoff), then to work down the road concentrating on the worst sections. The whole goal is to put as much surfacing material back onto the road so we have something to grade in subsequent years. We are asking that all material being placed on the road be 10 cm minus and be compacted, crowned and gradable.
* Road closures: will be kept to a maximum of two hours, with openings of the road for the first ten minutes of every even hour (i.e. 8:00, 10:00, 12:00….).
* Signage: of the project will be placed by the contractor at the following locations: 0 km on the Lillooet River Forest Service Road, and at the start of the Hurley River Forest Service Road (9km). In the Cascade District signs must be placed at 0 km of the Hurley River Forest Service Road and the start of the East Hurley (Bralorne).
* Users should anticipate several large pieces of equipment working on the road. Please drive with extreme caution and respect the signage and traffic control.
