Road Closures

Please note not all Forest Service Roads or other Forest Roads managed by Timber Tenure Holders have been assessed or inspected following the recent rain event. Other hazards may exist and may not be visible to road users. Attempting to cross damaged bridges, washouts, or sections affected by mudslides or landslides is not recommended.

Resource road users are reminded to make a plan before travelling the back roads. Please ensure you either have a means of communication, like a satellite phone, or have shared your route and return time with another person, as well as instructions on what to do if you are overdue. 

For more detailed information on Forest Service Road Closures, please contact the Cariboo-Chilcotin Natural Resource District Engineering Section at 250-398-4345 or e-mail
