Backcountry is one of British Columbia’s largest hunting, fishing and outdoor supply stores. The Fort St. John area is home to some of the best hunting and fishing opportunities in North America and often referred to as “The Serengeti of the North”.

Corner of 86 Street and 100 Avenue closed this weekend

The closure of the intersection at 86 Street and 100 Avenue was delayed last weekend and will now take place from this Friday, August 17 to Sunday, August 19. The intersection will be closed for the entirety of the three days, due to construction.

B.C. Hydro will be installing ducts to connect to the large four-way manhole recently placed under the intersection, which will require excavating the road for trenching. The manhole is intended to allow for access to power lines for maintenance in the future.

Traffic is expected to flow normally once the work is done and the intersection is reopened.

The City of Fort St. John and B.C. Hydro say work on the two projects in the area is still on schedule to be completed by the end of August, in time for the beginning of the school year.
