Telegraph Creek Road likely to reopen next week

Telegraph Creek Road likely to reopen next week

April 30, 2021 at 3:49 pm  BC, News, Politics

Drivers are advised that Telegraph Creek Road (Highway 51) remains closed in both directions for today, Friday, April 30, 2021, and is expected to reopen to light vehicle traffic early next week.

Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure geotechnical engineers, members of the Tahltan First Nation and ministry maintenance contractors are working day and night to repair the washout that occurred on April 15. Precipitation throughout the week created additional smaller slide sites that require repairs before the road can be opened.

Teams are also working with Emergency Management BC (EMBC) to provide emergency support to the community of Telegraph Creek.

The ministry would like to thank the Tahltan First Nation, the Tahltan Nation Development Corporation, the community of Dease Lake, the Regional District of Kitimat Stikine, EMBC and first responders for their work and co-operation.

The ministry also thanks everyone affected for their patience while it ensures a safe reopening.

Drivers are reminded to obey posted speed limits, traffic control devices and flag persons. For the most up-to-date information before travel, check: www.DriveBC.ca
