Input sought on proposed road between Vanderhoof and Anahim Lake

The public is invited to comment on a proposal to build a connector road between the communities of Vanderhoof and Anahim Lake.

The proposed road would allow traffic to travel more directly from Anahim Lake to Highway 16, providing a secondary fire-exit route for First Nations communities and rural residents.

The road would begin about 55 kilometres north of Anahim Lake at the end of the Dean River Road, pass near Eliguk Lake, and connect to the end of the Kluskus Forest Service Road. It would be built to current standards for forest service roads.

The ministry is consulting with First Nations, stakeholders and the public, as well as undertaking environmental, heritage and recreation reviews before making a decision on whether to proceed with construction.
