As the above-normal snowpack continues to melt and with a high streamflow advisory in effect, travellers are advised that several Forest Service roads (FSR) are closed due to washouts and care should be taken on others.
- Johnson Creek FSR near Moberly Lake, Fisher Creek and Silver Sands FSRs west of Chetwynd, and Table Creek FSR near Hudson's Hope are all closed.
- The Tumbler Ridge area, specifically the Murray River FSR, leading to Kinuseo Falls has been impacted and access to recreational sites and trails along the road is limited. These roads are only passable by pickup truck. Roadwork continues today so expect delays.
- The Moberly River FSR near Moberly Lake has also been impacted and repair work is underway. The road is open for pickup truck access only.
- There is currently no access to Wright Lake, Gething Creek and Carbon Lake recreation sites, as well as to Battleship Mountain hiking trail.
Travellers are advised to use caution when using back roads and be prepared for extreme conditions. Staff from the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations will continue to monitor the conditions and will provide updates as they become known.
