Our local SLRD Area A Director Debbie Demare was first across the Hurley this morning and sent in the following update and photos.
Gold Bridge to the East Hurley has heavy traffic with logging trucks and industrial traffic for the Jamie Creek IPP project. The sides of the road have been clear cut for the power lines so this section of road looks a lot different now. Most of the Hurley Road is rough, wet and full of pot holes. The top 2km has slush/ice sections. The switchbacks on the Pemberton side are in good shape and it’s the best section of road right now! Please use 4×4 when climbing up from the Pemberton Valley to conserve the road surface. There is a broken down sled on the side of the road and also a couple of vehicles.
The Cadwallader Bridge by the mine has been compromised by high water and is closed until further notice. Water has also overrun 3 culverts between Bralorne and the steel bridge so people heading to Bralorne will have to go through Gold Bridge. Update: The East Hurley has re-opened again, watch out for logging activity.
