As of January 27, 2023 at 4:00 p.m. there is no longer a detour in effect. The Bamfield Main is once again open for all traffic through this area.
From February 13-17, 2023 drivers can still expect single-lane traffic and delays at a minimum of five locations between Port Alberni and Bamfield, each with a maximum of a 15-minute delay. Both traffic control persons at stops and/or automated flagging devices with pilot cars will be utilized.

Please slow down and expect additional delays due to the changing weather conditions. Winter driving conditions should be expected, and all public drivers should check weather conditions before travelling and be prepared. Please avoid driving during extreme weather conditions.
A friendly reminder that the speed should not exceed 60 km per hour, and drivers are required to slow down in bad weather conditions and when construction equipment, flaggers, and crews are on the road. The RCMP will be monitoring for safe driving throughout the project and detour.
