Update from FLNRO
The grader started on Friday. They conducted our pre work safety meeting. They graded the rough spots coming up the switchbacks from 9km to 22km. They were plowing snow from here to around 33km (Km’s decreasing). Starting full grading down to 28km.
The grader is parked close to the bridge in a pull out. The snow should be fully melted where we plowed it. It was melting fast by Friday afternoon. They are not sure if there is any snow past 28km,but it looks like they are through it.
They will be resuming grading on Monday. The grader operator has been requested to put in long days to get the job done by Thursday.
He is hoping to work 28km to Gold Bridge from Monday to Wednesday, then spend Thursday finishing the switchbacks on the Pemberton end.
If you see the grader working please give him lots of space until it is safe to pass. People are reporting the Hurley is in great shape except for loose gravel and potholes at the summit. Please drive slow to preserve the good condition of the road and always use 4wd when climbing to prevent chewing up the road surface.
