VANCOUVER ISLAND, B.C. — Permits are now available for trucks weighing up to 85,000kg for two newly-approved routes on Vancouver Island.

Hwy. 4 from Ash Forest Mainline Road (near Sproat Lake Provincial Park) west to the crossing of the Clutesi Creek Bridge, and Hwy. 4 from Weyerhauser Branch Road #38 (west of Friesen Creek Bridge) to the Kennedy Forest Mainline at Sutton Pass are the approved routes for trucks.

The Insurance Corp. of B.C. (ICBC) is responsible for issuing permits for the above routes, which were recently approved by the Bridge Engineering Section of the province’s Ministry of Transportation. Neither of the route segments connect to each other or to a previously approved portion of Hwy. 4, according to the B.C. Trucking Association.
