The Chilcotin Forest District has an extensive road network totaling over 9000 kms, not including roads under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Transportation and Highways. The District road inventory consists of approximately 1800 kms of Forest Service Roads (FSRs), 2800 kms of Road Permit (RP) roads and 4500-plus kms of “non-status”roads. There are 36 bridges or major structures on the FSRs with the largest being a 50 meter span over the Chilko River at Henry’s Crossing. Forest licensees have about three times as many bridges/large structures on their “Road Permit” roads. There are also 20 Special Use Permits for gravel pits on FSRs and RPs.
While forest licensees have Road Use Permits and maintain much of the FSR network the district does maintain all access to recreation sites and is responsible for maintenance, including snow plowing on several FSRs that have year-round residences.
