Bamfield Main Road Update – September 22, 2023

Bamfield Main Resurfacing Project Header

For the safety of crews working on the Bamfield Main, single-lane alternating traffic with pilot vehicles will be in place where sweeping is occurring. For the safety of all crews working on the road and other road users, please slow down, follow the speed limit,  and drive with extreme caution.


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.
