Effective Wednesday, Sept. 16, 2015, through Sunday, Nov. 8, 2015, the Cariboo River Forest Service Road (8400 Road) will be closed at the .75 kilometre mark to allow for the replacement of a bridge over the Cariboo River.

The bridge, which is being replaced to improve public safety, is situated approximately 13.5 km northeast of Likely, 80 km northeast of Williams Lake and 70 km east of Quesnel.

Alternate access to the east side of Cariboo Lake is available by travelling through the community of Wells, following the Cunningham Pass Forest Service Road (3100 Road), to the Cariboo River Forest Service Road.

The Cariboo River Forest Service Road is part of British Columbia’s 55,000-kilometre forest service road network that provides access to British Columbia’s backcountry.
