Site C log hauling shifted to night-time hours

Contractors are shifting their work schedules to begin nightly log hauling starting tonight, Monday, March 11, BC Hydro says.

Log hauling will take place from 10 p.m. to 10 a.m. in the Cache Creek, Old Hope Road, and dam site areas as the clearing seasons winds down, BC Hydro says.

"This will help us co-ordinate with local mills’ new nighttime operating hours. It also reduces the potential for heavy trucks to damage roads during the spring thaw and warmer daytime temperatures," BC Hydro stated in a public advisory.

An average of one to two trucks per hour are expected on the roads, and hauling will end in early April, BC Hydro says.

Merchantable timber will be taken to local mills while all other wood will be chipped, mulched, or burned on site. 

Motorists are asked to use caution along the road.
