Jan 2 Update

Posted by on January 2, 2018

The logging company has plowed the Hurley from Pemberton to Gold Bridge and they will resume log hauling this week and remove all their equipment by early next week, weather permitting. The original post said logging for a few more weeks but then they sent another update.

Thanks to everyone who sent in an update to let us know! This latest update from Rick is from Tuesday afternoon: The route is plowed the entire way from Gold Bridge. It was a smooth ride and extra beautiful without the road dust. The road is plowed wide enough for two vehicles to pass from Gold Bridge for at least 20km. Thanks for the updates and the plowing!

The East Hurley has a washout about 300m east of the junction with the Hurley Main. The culvert is sitting in the channel cut across the road which is 150cm deep and about 300cm wide and impassible by truck or sled. Beavers have since dammed the higher side so expect more washouts in the spring. Both sides of the pond are covered in ice to thin to cross by sled. Thanks to Conny for the update.

The Hurley is getting lots of different types of traffic.  The road is plowed narrow so please drive slow and stay on your side of the road. If you have a radio use Resource Road Channel 19. If you choose to drive the Hurley at this time of the year, be prepared to experience all kinds of weather and winter driving conditions.  Winter driving skills, 4 x4, chains and good snow tires are essential for travel.  A survival/safety kit are good things to carry in your truck.  Conditions can change fast at anytime up there with the fluctuating temperatures & weather.
