Hurley Contest and Update

Posted by on May 8, 2012


Guess the day the Hurley will be open to vehicle traffic and be in the running to win a
“I Survived The Hurley” T Shirt and Bumper Sticker!

Update regarding the avalanche fly over scheduled for April 16……..

The Ministry of Transportation trip to assess the Hurley River Rd  snow pack and avalanche risk for the week of April 16  was cancelled last minute.  Ministry of Transportation officials advise that when the avy techs get a chance they will assess the Hurley  for avalanche risk.

Ministry of Forests officials advise the brushing out of the road from 1 km to 12 km will begin soon.

Follow up with various Ministry folks is continuing and ongoing weekly by Bridge River Valley organizations and officials.  Updates will be posted as they are received.


Hurley Update on Tuesday May 8th

Interior Roads will put two machines on the road for snow removal – one at each end.
Still waiting for clearance from avalanche technicians.
Waiting for update from MOF re avy clearing on the steel bridge to GoldBridge section.

UPDATE on Wednesday May 9

Road from Steel Bridge to Gold Bridge. (Min. of Forests section)
Brushing started last Thursday (3rd).
The avalanche path at 12 km was opened over the weekend.
Still some rough sections where 4 x4 is recommended but with warm weather on it’s way the road should be in good shape by May long weekend sometime.  This is for the section from Gold Bridge to the Steel Bridge at 17km only.  No news on the summit section yet which is the section with the most snow clearing work required.
The grader tender for the road opens today (9th) and MOF plan to start grading this section on Monday (14th).
Please do NOT drive up the Hurley to see what progress is being made as the road that has been cleared  is in rough shape and you will be causing more damage and will get in the way of heavy machinery working.  When the road is open it will be posted here, thank you!

UPDATE on Friday May 11

Interior Roads have started clearing their section of the road.
