Updates on public pits
Marsh Lake public pit reopens
The public gravel pit at the Marsh Lake Transfer Station has reopened. We closed the pit over the winter because of safety concerns with the high, steep slopes.
We've now fixed the slopes and developed the pit to its maximum limits. Once the granular material located on the floor of the pit is gone, we'll close and decommission the pit.
We've closed the following public pits due to health and safety concerns:
- kilometre 223, North Klondike Highway; and
- kilometre 50, Tagish Road.
We've permanently closed the following public pits because they've been depleted:
- kilometre 1484.1, Alaska Highway, near Stony Creek;
- kilometre 2.7, McLean Lake Road; and
- kilometre 150, South Klondike Highway, near Kookatsoon Lake.
