Side road warning issued for Bulkley Valley

The Bulkley and Kispiox Valleys are in rough shape due to rain falling on compact snow.

  • Jan. 16, 2017 5:00 a.m.

Billabong Road and Bridge Maintenance is advising everyone that some of the side roads throughout our area including Smithers, Telkwa, Moricetown, Kitwanga, Hazeltons, and Kitspiox Areas may be in slippery conditions despite sanding/salting/grading efforts due to warming temperatures and rain on compact snow, which have created some icy road conditions.

We are asking all motorists to use extreme caution when they must drive.

Billabong Road Maintenance is aware of the rural road conditions and is advising current attempts to improve traction on the side roads (grading, sanding, salting, etc.) may have a limited impact until the periodic rain showers stop completely.

If you encounter and area of urgent concern please call us at one of the phone numbers below.
