FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – In order to keep Peace River boaters safe near Site C construction sites, B.C. Hydro is introducing a Portage Program.

According to B.C. Hydro, they are rerouting a short section of the Peace River during construction of the Site C Project which will result in permanent closures on the Peace and Moberly Rivers beginning June 15, 2020.

To move boaters around the construction area, Hydro says they have set up a seasonal portage program to transport non-motorized vessels, up to 20 feet, by road past the dam.
