Flooding from Burnt Bridge Creek has been running along Highway 20 for weeks now.

Burnt Bridge Creek continues to flood along Highway 20

Burnt Bridge Creek has been steadily making its way along Highway 20 for the last month, and the situation is only getting worse. Several homes and properties are affected, and some homeowners are restricted access to their homes due to flooding across their driveways.

Since the 2010 flood, Burnt Bridge Creek has drastically changed course, and the result has negatively affected many properties in the area. However, at present, nothing has been done to address the situation.

Interior Roads has confirmed that, as a contractor, there is no action they can take until the Ministry of Transportation gives approval and funding. Leanna Ilnicki, West Chilcotin Area Manager for the Ministry of Transportation, said the Ministry is looking into the problem.

“The Ministry is very much aware of the situation in that area, and we are actively monitoring our infrastructure closely in conjunction with our maintenance contractor, and currently working with the local residents and CCRD to assess mitigation options,” said Ilnicki.
