City to start wildfire fuel mitigation work on Broddy Road

The City of Prince George will be starting Wildfire Fuel Mitigation work on Monday.

The work will start at Broddy Road between the Vanway Firehall and the Vanway transfer station.

The project is expected to be completed by the end of August, and there may be short road closures of Broddy Road over the coming weeks.

The work done may include thinning trees, pruning branches and removing dead wood, reducing the amount of litter and debris on the ground, or creating buffer zones between homes and wildlands.

The total cost of the project is estimated to be $253,050.

$200,000 will be covered by Community Resiliency Investment grant funding, with the remainder to be covered using the city’s EVP Crown Land Forest account.

The City will also be hosting a pop-up booth with their Environmental Specialist at the Golden Age Social event to give the public an opportunity to learn about the work.
