Work still progressing on flood damaged roads in the peace

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Ministry of Transportation says they still have lots of work ahead of them in fixing the damage from the floods that ravaged northern BC.

They estimate that they have 300 locations that were hit by the flooding.

In early August, the Ministry says they had close to 200 pieces of heavy equipment working on repair sites. According to their website, they are trying to do the best they can to repair damage.

“While a number of affected routes have reopened, there is still a lot of work to be done and our crews are doing their best to repair damaged sections and reinforce them to help prevent future damage.”

There are many phases crews have to go through to make sure the roads are completely repaired and safe for the public to travel on.
