Copper Mountain Access Road closure

BC Hydro plans to close the Copper Mountain Access Road Closure over parts of two days in late June.

The planned closure is to affect public access on June 25-26 from 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on both days.

The closure affects the access road to the top of Copper Mountain, which will be closed to allow crews to safely deliver necessary oversized equipment to the facility at the top of the mountain.

The plan is weather dependent. The equipment being transported is large and heavy so rainy conditions on the day of or days leading up to could result in the date being changed at short notice due to soft road conditions.

A message from the hydro and power authority apologized for the inconvenience the road closure may cause, however BC Hydro's priority is to ensure the safety of both the crews and the recreational users of the industrial access road.

BC Hydro wishes to thank residents and recreational users for their patience and understanding. Crews will work to open the road as quickly as can be accomplished safely.
