Aspen Planers Update
The following is an update of Aspen Planers harvesting activities in the Bridge River Valley heading into the July long weekend.
Our harvesting crews are located throughout the valley in the following locations:
Continue to expect logging truck traffic Monday to Friday on Road 40 with the possibility of some minor weekend trucking. Travel leaving Lillooet for Goldbridge after 5 pm daily will reduce the amount of crew and log truck encounters.
Truck traffic will be steady throughout the summer on the Marshall/Mud road system. There will be heavy traffic coming out of the Bridge River Mainline entering the Hurley FSR at the 4 km. Trucks will be entering the road between Goldbridge and Bralorne traveling down into Goldbridge. Trucks will also be entering Road 40 just west of the Yalakom bridge out of the La Rochelle/Moha FSR.
We will be stockpiling some wood at the old rock quarry near the Goldbridge transfer station. Trucks will be turning off the Hurley FSR and traveling up the road towards Gun Lake. Extra caution is advisable near the Hurley junction as the trucks will be moving very slowly at this intersection.
There will be some brushing and road upgrades on the Slim FSR over the next month to access a new area that we may start logging later in the summer.
Any questions or comments can be sent to me directly.
