|Roads treated as part of this project were determined through overview analysis to be|
moderate or high risk with respect to resources at stake. Priority roads were constructed between the early 1970ís and mid-1980ís. Environmental maintenance was prescribed to address issues on approximately 7.0 km road but only 4.3 km were completed in 2009. A late project start date and early snowfall limited production. Hazards included failed or failing drainage structures including two major road washouts on S5 channels, uncontrolled drainage, ditch diversions and scour, and
sediment input to streams. None of the roads prescribed are on or above Class IV or V terrain, and no similar treatments had been applied.
