Connector clear

The Fort St. James-Mackenzie connector is nearly complete and is now clear to travel.

The Fort St. James-Mackenzie connector is nearly complete and clear to travel.

After closures and delays through the summer, the Fort St. James-Mackenzie connector road, otherwise known as the Rainbow Forest Service Road, is almost complete.

There is about 20 km left of graveling left to do, but all of the required “subgrade” work has been completed along the entire 80 km length of the connector.

While some work can be done once the snow comes, the push is on to try and complete the graveling before snowfall, otherwise clearing of the snow is required, and the wet conditions make the work more difficult.

Log hauling is going on along some sections of the road already, and may commence along the entire route by November or December.

The graveling remaining is not creating significant delays at this point and the road is in good condition.
