Open house to discuss logging roads’ futures

The future of several well-used logging roads around Revelstoke will be the topic of an open house on Wednesday.

The future of several well-used logging roads around Revelstoke will be the topic of an open house on Wednesday.

Logging company Stella Jones and representatives from the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations, will be on hand to discuss the future of a number of key logging roads in the Revelstoke area at an open house at the community centre on Wednesday, Sept. 24, from 3–7 p.m.

The roads affected access Mount McCrae, Arrowhead, Sproat Mountain, south Begbie Creek, upper Boulder Mountain and parts of Frisby Ridge.

The roads were all maintained by Stella Jones, but as they stop operations in those areas, they will be deactivating their roads.

The biggest impacts will be the removal of a major culvert on the Mount McCrae road, and of two major culverts near the 36 kilometre mark of the Crawford road, which leads to Sproat and Arrowhead.

Ladyman said the ministry has indicated it will take over maintenance of the McCrae road.

Work on Boulder and Frisby will make the roads rougher, but access should still be possible for mountain bikers and snowmobilers, he said.
