The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure (MOTI) has announced that road work at the Cameron Lake Bluff wildfire location along Highway 4 will begin on Monday, July 17th until mid-August.
This means that traffic will be stopped:
- 9 AM -11:30 AM and 1:30 PM – 5 PM daily, Monday to Friday.
- Flush-through with single-lane-alternating traffic mid-day Monday-Friday: westbound traffic release at 11:30 AM, eastbound release by 12:30 PM.
- Single-lane-alternating traffic throughout the evening and overnight from 5 PM-9 AM daily.
- Single-lane-alternating all-day Saturdays and Sundays, as well as statutory holidays (i.e.: BC Day, August 7th).
The rock scaling and slope stabilization must be completed during daylight hours and ahead of the rainy season. MOTI is trying to limit the impacts of travel delays as much as possible while keeping public safety the top priority.
