There will be an increase of heavy truck traffic on Highways 97 and 29 starting this week and lasting through the spring, BC Hydro says.
Trucks will be hauling riprap from the West Pine Quarry south of Chetwynd to the Halfway River starting this week. Work is expected to be completed by the end of April.
The riprap will be used to build the Highway 29 realignment at Halfway River, BC Hydro said.
Hauling will take place Mondays to Saturdays from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., with an average of 14 round trips a day.
Motorists are urged to drive with caution.
