Ministry crews still working to open many Peace roads

Crews are still working to restore Highway 97 between Chetwynd and MacKenzie.

Ministry engineers have completed initial assessments of the major sites.  Crews and heavy equipment have been mobilized with priority on reconnecting severed routes while Maintenance Contractor crews and equipment are at work responding to erosion, flooding and washouts throughout the Peace Region.

At the moment 75 pieces of heavy equipment are working to fix various roads in the Peace region.

Out of 100 sites on more than 80 roads, crews have been able to fix 80 sites and either bring them into full operation or at least single-lane alternating traffic.
