Drivers are reminded that deactivation work of up to 500 kilometres of permit roads in BC Timber Sales operating areas throughout the Quesnel Natural Resource District begins Monday, July 30, 2018, weather permitting.
The deactivation work will be ongoing until Dec. 31, 2018, and will be carried out by crews working in the Big Valley, Charleson, Gerimi and Tibbles areas of the natural resource district.
This work includes:
- removing all crossing structures and stream culverts
- installing water bars and cross ditches to control erosion
- seeding grass on ditches and road surfaces to control erosion
- implementing access control measures
Under the Forestry Revitalization Act, the Province has a statutory responsibility to retire permit roads that are no longer in use and no longer being maintained. These roads do not impact access to designated recreation sites or main industry haul roads.
