The District has been advised that in the early morning hours of November 16th, at approximately 3:00 am, pipeline crews will begin blasting to support their Mountain 2 crossing construction. During the blast, a full Trans-Canada Highway eastbound lane closure (Hunter Creek Exit 160) is expected for up to 15 minutes to safely accommodate the removal of any hazards. If any unforeseen issues arise, the closure would be extended.
This work/closure is being coordinated with the Ministry of Transportation, who will update DriveBC accordingly. Transmountain has informed the District that additional blasting will occur in this area intermittently from 16-Nov-22 to 15-Dec-22 and will resume again from March to April. Further notification will be provided prior to subsequent blasting activity.
