Galbraith Road To Be Closed For Bridge Replacements
Aug 18, 2008
CRANBROOK - The public is advised that beginning Wednesday, Aug. 20, the Galbraith Forest Service Road will be closed to all traffic for about six weeks to facilitate the replacement of six bridges along the road.
The Galbraith Forest Service Road provides access to Summer Lake recreation site. The closure begins at the road's beginning at 'Kilometre 45' of the Bull River Forest Service Road, northeast of Cranbrook. The closure will be in effect until the end of September.
Road closure notices will be posted at highway access points to the Bull River road system. As well, barricades will be placed on the Galbraith Road where bridges are removed. The public is asked to respect the road closures for their own safety and that of work crews.
Anyone travelling on forest roads should use extreme caution as road conditions can change without warning. For updated information on road closures, contact the Rocky Mountain Forest District at 250-426-1700 or visit the district's website at [http://www.for.gov.bc.ca/drm/works/works.htm].
