San Josef Mainline - Temporary Road Closures

Posted April 17, 2018

The Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations & Rural Development is planning a capital upgrade of several bridges and crossing structures on the San Josef Main FSR during the summers of 2018 and 2019. 

The road will be closed for bridge construction during the following periods:

  • Monday June 18- Thursday June 21 2018
  • Monday June 25- Thursday June 28 2018
  • Tuesday Sept 4- Friday Sept 7 2018
  • Tuesday Sept 11- Friday Sept 14 2018

We are not planning any road closures in the months of July or August, however if weather conditions in June are too wet, we may need to shut down during July. We will not impact any long weekends.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact The Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations & Rural Development Engineering reps Sasha.Ward@gov.bc.ca or Alan.Bratosh@gov.bc.ca.  Thank you for your patience during this capital road upgrade.
