Highway 97 north of Quesnel is the latest area road to be damaged by landslides.
Emcon Services calls the damage the Cottonwood Slide Area. This is a separate slide than the Cottonwood Hill slide, which is on the Quesnel-Hixon road and not Highway 97.
The area being worked on showed damage in May and November of 2020, near Umiti Pit Road, 15 km north of Quesnel.
“This slide area has started to show more movement over the last day or so,” Emcon Services posted on Facebook. “Crews have and will continue to work on it throughout the weekend.”
Emcon says to expect single lane alternating traffic if travelling and check DriveBC before leaving for your destination.
