Forestry roads still closed near Mount Polley Mine

Forestry roads near the site of the Mount Polley Mine disaster area are still closed.

The BC forests ministry says that heavy equipment is still working on site rehabilitation of Hazeltine Creek.

Officials say the Horsefly-Likely (Ditch Road), Gavin, and Horsefly-Polley Lake forestry roads will remain off limits to unauthorized vehicles until further notice.

The Polley Lake and Raft Creek recreation sites were also affected by the tailings pond breach and will stay closed during stream rehabilitation and habitat reconstruction.

Work is expected to be done and roads reopened sometime this fall.

Until then, residents won’t be able to use Ditch Road as an alternative route between Horsefly and Likely.
