San Josef Temporary Road Closure
The Ministry of
Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations & Rural Development is planning a
capital upgrade of several bridges and crossing structures on the San Josef Main
FSR during the summers of 2018 and 2019. In 2018 we are planning to replace 7
bridges and one embedded CMP between 14.7km and 16km.
The road will be
for bridge construction during the following periods:
June 18- Thursday June 21 2018
June 25- Thursday June 28 2018
Sept 4- Friday Sept 7 2018
Sept 11- Friday Sept 14 2018
We are not planning any road closures in the months of July
or August, however if weather conditions in June are too wet,
we may need to shut down during July. We will not impact any long weekends.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact The
Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations & Rural Development

Thank you for your patience during this capital road upgrade.
From the Nimpkish Valley on Vancouver Island in the south to Princess Royal Island in the
north, the North Island - Central Coast
Resource District stretches from the Pacific Ocean
to Tweedsmuir Provincial Park over some of the most rugged and beautiful
wilderness in British Columbia. It is the home of coastal temperate
rainforest, rare wildlife and plant species and contains an abundance of
other natural resources.
The North Island - Central Coast Resource District office is located in Port
McNeill on Northern Vancouver Island. With a field office located in
the Bella Coola Valley community of Hagensborg, the Central Coast can be reached by Highway 20 from Williams Lake. It can
also be accessed by B.C. Ferries Discovery Coast Passage during the summer
months and regular scheduled flights throughout the year. It is remote,
but becoming more well known globally due to the establishment of the Great Bear Rainforest in 2016.
