FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Over the past week, B.C. Hydro has begun transporting large penstock segments from a manufacturing facility in Fort St. John to the Site C Dam site.

According to B.C. Hydro, due to the size of the penstocks, there will be minor traffic delays along Old Fort Road as the equipment is moved on oversized trucks.

Hydro says the scheduled overnight deliveries will take about 1.5 hours each time, and occur weekly to biweekly depending on the phase of the project.
