Announcement regarding temporary road closure near Keremeos

  • Sep. 7, 2011 10:00 a.m.

Travellers are advised that the Ashnola Forest Service Road in  the Keremeos area will be closed at 18.7 kilometres and 32.9 kilometres  to allow for the installation of two stream crossings from Wednesday, September 7  through Friday, October 14.

The work will include the removal of two existing wooden culverts and  replacement with a larger steel pipe and concrete-slab structure to  improve public safety.

One recreation trail on Easygoing Creek will not be accessible during  the closure.

 

British Columbia’s 55,000-km network of Forest Service roads is bigger  than the provincial highway system.
