As we near completion of this year's clearing season for Site C, we are making some changes to our work schedule.
Starting on Monday March 11, we will begin nighttime log hauling in the Cache Creek, Old Hope Road, and dam site areas. Hauling will take place from around 10 p.m. to 10 a.m.
This will help us coordinate with local mills' new nighttime operating hours. It also reduces the potential for heavy trucks to damage roads during the spring thaw and warmer daytime temperatures.
We expect the frequency of trucks to stay the same – an average of one or two trucks an hour. Log hauling will end in early April.
Safety is BC Hydro's top priority. We have a traffic management plan that ensures compliance with all legal traffic requirements. A dedicated safety person will be on site and our crew will have daily meetings to discuss safety, road usage, and key traffic periods.
Please continue to use caution and watch for active work areas. We appreciate your patience as we finish this work.
