Teck has issued notice that they will be carrying out a seasonal private road closure on a section of Coal Leach Road at the 82.5 km marker from Monday April 15, 2019. The road will remain closed until water is no longer flowing over the road. Access from Corbin Road to Coal Leach Road will not be possible during this time.
This is an annual seasonal closure to protect fish populations in the Michel Creek, which flows over the road at times of high water.
Gates have been placed on Coal Leach Road on either side of the Michel Creek bridge and will be locked during this closure period.
We recognize that this access road is used by a number of people and that the closure may cause inconvenience – we thank you for your patience during this time.
At all times, please be aware that this road is a private industrial road and access is at your own risk. The road is not maintained for public traffic. Teck will give notice of road closures wherever possible.
Further updates on the road closures will be communicated internally and posted at Teck’s Elk Valley Public Access website www.teck.com/coalmaps.
