The NB Power mine reclamation group will be reshaping some of the slopes near the 8200 trail with heavy equipment. There will be two posted “Caution- Construction Ahead’ signs. Due to safety reasons, there should be no biking allowed in the work area when the equipment is on site. This work could extend till the end of September. Updates will be posted here as the project progresses.
