Nightly closure are expected in July onwards.

Believe this is the section where the ambulance fell in the lake a few years back.

Hard to hate something that will immediately improve safety.

Surveyors were out in full force on Hwy 4 yesterday.  Was a good day to take the sports car out on this fun road before construction starts.

I went from Tofino to Cluculz Lake, west of Prince George in one day in my VW Corrado.

From the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure:

Park visitors, interest groups and people who live in surrounding communities will have a chance to shape future access to Cathedral Grove, with a series of open houses focusing on understanding and addressing safety concerns.

(Can’t attend the open house? Fill out the online feedback form at http://engage.gov.bc...athedralgrove )

Cathedral Grove, located in MacMillan Provincial Park, is an old growth forest found along Highway 4. The park has become a local, national and international attraction, with roughly 500,000 visitors per year. As the park’s popularity continues to grow, so too have issues surrounding pedestrian safety and parking alongside the highway.

The Cathedral Grove Pedestrian and Traffic Safety Study is seeking public input on understanding these issues, with a series of open houses, a survey and online public engagement starting Nov. 21, 2018. The goal of this engagement process is to learn more about how to address safety and parking concerns at Cathedral Grove, while protecting environmental, social and cultural values.

Input from this public consultation period, along with feedback from First Nations and local government, will be used to guide the development of future safety initiatives.

The ministry anticipates sharing initial safety concepts for further public engagement in spring 2019.

Public information sessions:

Date: Wednesday, Nov. 21, 2018

Times: Media invited at 3:30 p.m.

Public invited from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Location:
Port Alberni Friendship Centre
Clutesi Hall
3555 4th Ave.
Port Alberni

Date: Thursday, Nov. 22, 2018

Times: Media invited at 3:30 p.m.

Public invited from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Location:
Oceanside Place
Multi-purpose room

Matt.

Just half.  Pave one side entirely, there's still the other for everyone to enjoy.
