Bamfield Main Road Update – September 26, 2022

Construction continues on the Bamfield Main Project. The full detour remains in effect both for the public and residents. RCMP monitoring of the road is underway to ensure safe driving practices are being adhered to. Access points to Poett Nook and Sarita are being maintained.

All industrial traffic will have access through construction areas with limited delays. The 60 KM speed limit remains in effect on the detour 24 hours a day seven days a week. Crews will continue working on culverts, borrow fill, rip rap, bridge building, signage, and crush placement. Watch for flaggers and construction crew and reduce speed in construction areas.

Visitors, citizens, and Huu-ay-aht staff using the road are asked to expect delays and to obey road signs and flaggers. The detour is in place 24 hours a day regardless of construction work taking place. Please visit: for the latest public updates.
