Bamfield Main Road Update – September 19, 2023

Bamfield Main Resurfacing Project Header

Crews are starting grade preparation and chip sealing this week at kilometres 0 to 4. This will require vehicles to follow a pilot vehicle at this section. Delays are estimated to be a maximum of 15 minutes.

There are also some places where crews will work in zones along kilometres 0 to 36. Workers will be grading, sweeping, and placing chip seals. Please stay alert to pilot vehicles, road signs, and speed limits.


Huu-ay-aht has had a number of concerns brought to their attention in regards to vehicles speeding and putting other road users at risk, specifically around narrow sections of the road. Please be aware of the road signage and obey the speed limit of 60 km/hr. The Bamfield Main is still an active industrial logging road and road users are travelling on the Bamfield Main at their own risk. To ensure safety for everyone, please slow down.

Be aware and watch for construction equipment, flaggers, crews are on the road, and follow pilot vehicles.  

The RCMP will be monitoring for safe driving throughout the project and detour.

Please drive with your headlights on and drive with extreme caution.
