BC Hydro says it will be conducting archaeological field studies near the Hudson’s Hope shoreline over the next several weeks.

The studies are being done in preparation for construction of the shoreline protection berm, which will start this fall, BC Hydro said.

Work will start during the week of May 25, and run from 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., seven days a week.

The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure will also be upgrading the brake check at Canyon Drive.

The upgrades are needed to improve road safety due to an increase in trucks hauling from Portage Mountain Quarry, BC Hydro said.

Work began on May 25, and will last about two weeks. Drivers are asked to slow down in the construction area and prepare for lane closures.
