While this work takes place, local area residents can expect the following:

  • There will be additional truck traffic in the area as construction crews mobilize to the Site C dam site and logging trucks remove timber. This will include increased industrial traffic on the resource roads from Chetwynd leading to the construction site on the south bank of the dam site.
  • While road improvements are made to 240 Road, 269 Road and Old Fort Road, motorists can expect to encounter traffic control personnel, minor traffic delays and single-lane alternating traffic.
  •  While clearing occurs along Old Fort Road, 85th Avenue, 81st Avenue, 240 Road and 269 Road, construction crews and vehicles will be in the area. Please use caution.
  • Depending on the forest fire ratings in the area, early morning and/or night shifts may be scheduled, in addition to shifts on the weekends.
  • Some noise and dust may result in the vicinity of the dam site and along public roads as a result of the scheduled construction activities.
