Heffley Louis Creek cattle guards under review

Travellers on Heffley Louis Creek Rd. could soon have smoother drives to Sun Peaks as the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure looks at removing some of the existing cattle guards.

A spokesperson for the ministry said they were notified by local residents that some may no longer be needed. They have since committed to work alongside the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resources and Rural Development to assess current grazing leases and rancher’s needs.

“A schedule and budget would be developed once the number of surplus cattle guards is determined,” they said in an email.
