Peace River navigation changes at Site C

BC Hydro says navigation changes are coming to a section of the Peace River in the Site C dam construction zone this weekend.

Starting Aug. 19, the navigation channel under the dam site's construction's bridge will be moving 50 metres from the main stem of the river and over to the north bank. Navigation lights and markings on the bridge will be moved to reflect the change, BC Hydro says.

"Please exercise caution when navigating the Peace River at and around the dam site for safety reasons," BC Hydro writes in a bulletin.

"The navigation channel through the construction site is dynamic and may continue to change during the construction period based on river conditions and water flows."
