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.
