Mowich Creek Mud Slide

Posted by on November 23, 2017

UPDATE Nov 25: Sounds like the culvert needs to be replaced and the work was not finished yesterday. High clearance is needed to get over the rocks in the slide area. Chains recommended for the summit.

UPDATE Nov 24 : Crews are working to repair Mowich Creek slide area and it should be open by the end of the day, unless the culvert needs to be replaced.

After the rain event on Nov 22/23 travel on the Hurley is not recommended due to a mud slide at Mowich Creek which is just past Branch 12.  The Wolverine Creek washout has been repaired. Road 40 to Lillooet is open with some alternating traffic and the Highline Road between D’Arcy and Seton Portage is still closed due to a creek blowout.

Thanks to Kathy Milne from Backcountry Snowcats for the photos of the Mowich Creek slide and Wolverine Creek washout on the Lillooet FSR.
