Hunters and trappers are being asked to be mindful and cautious around Site C transmission line construction being carried out south of the Peace River.

Work is underway to build a 75 kilometre, 500-kilovolt line between the Peace Canyon generating station and the planned Site C substation, and crews will be working along various sections of the route, BC Hydro says.

"The safety of the public and our employees is our number one priority," the company said in a notice.

"To ensure the safety of the public and our crews, please watch for signs that indicate active work areas and do not hunt or shoot in areas where construction could be occurring."

The line is being built on an existing right-of-way and is planned to continue through to 2024.
