Bamfield Main Road Update – November 7, 2022

Bamfield Main Resurfacing Project Header

For the period of November 7 – 13, 2022 the Bamfield Main Road detour remains in place from approximately 36 km to 58 km. Drivers can expect single-lane traffic and delays of up to 15 minutes at approximately three automated flag systems with pilot cars placed on both sides of the detour.  

Only industrial traffic will have access through construction areas. All other travellers are required to use the detour, and those who attempt to bypass the detour will be turned back.  

All traffic can expect new delays of 15 – 30 minutes outside of the detour as ditching is now underway at 34 km. New delays may be experienced at bridges as well. 

Please expect extra additional delays due to the changing weather conditions and the movement of construction materials and equipment. 

Speed should not exceed 60 km per hour, and drivers are required to slow down when construction equipment and crews are on the road. The RCMP will be monitoring for safe driving throughout the project and detour. 

Crews will continue to work on culvert replacement, borrowing, grid placement, ditching, and sign installations.
