Start maintaining Heffley Louis Creek Road

The road is heavily travelled by Sun Peaks residents, commuters and logging crews

To the editor;

I am writing to voice my concerns and disgust with the condition of  Heffley Louis Creek Road.

This road has been very poorly maintained this year.  Argo usually comes out to grade the road in preparation for the winter season. That was not done this year, leaving the road nearly impassible.  The road is riddled with potholes.

I will admit the first two kilometres the company tried to salvage after the first snowfall is the best section of the road; however, it does not make up for the other nine kilometres Argo is contracted to maintain.

We are now into our second snowfall. There were no plows or graders clearing the road two days after the snow fell.

The road is heavily travelled by Sun Peaks residents, commuters and logging crews.

On one recent morning, I saw two vehicles spin out on separate hills and multiple drivers struggling to safely pass oncoming traffic due to unplowed roads.

There is no room on the edges of the road to safely pull away from the centre of the road to allow for traffic to pass. This has left the stretch a single-lane obstacle course.

Something needs to be done.

This road needs to be properly maintained.
