It is expected that construction will start up mid-late June; however this is weather dependent (snow load). Construction schedules will not be available until we know start up dates.

Taret Completion Date:

SPRING 2011 ROAD CLOSURE:

There is currently a 2011 Spring Road Closure in place for ALL traffic (with the exception of Terrane), which took effect on April 11, 2011. The Closure applies to the entire Connector construction area to prevent damage to the road and associated forest and environmental resources during spring break-up. The Closure will remain in place until it is rescinded (weather dependent). The implementation of the Closure has been by placement of barricades and signage. Please be aware that even during times when light traffic “may” be permitted, construction delays must be expected until late August 2011
