Road Closures

Cook Creek FSR 9613 Branch 4 (BR4701) (as of Dec 5, 2017)
BR4701 FSR off the Cook Creek Main will be closed at 1.5 km due to a failing bridge abutment.  There is no access beyond this point.


Nahmint Main FSR7954 Branch 01 downgraded to 5 Tons from 0km to 17km
(as of June 27, 2018)
Deteriorating Wooden Box Culverts on Nahmint Main from 0km (Junction with Canal and Lake Main) to 17km (Junction with Gracie Hook-up) has caused the Road Network Design Vehicle Load Rating to be downgraded to 5 tons.  This means access is for light vehicle traffic only.  We are in the process of reviewing and replacing these structures, expect periodic and lengthy delays through the summer.  Pay attention to this site for further updates on this replacement project.  Alternative access can be via Cous/Kanyon Mains and Gracie/Gracie Hook-up.
