The Squamish-Lillooet Regional District (SLRD) has implemented a travel advisory for the Lillooet River Forest Service Road (FSR) after raising the road's landslide hazard level to high.

The hazard level for the road-which links the communities of Pemberton and Mount Currie to the Hurley FSR-was elevated on Tuesday, Aug. 7 due to a series of high-temperature days the region observed over the past week, explained the SLRD in the advisory posted to their website.

According to the advisory, the hazard level rating is based on the provincial volcanic landslide shutdown criteria for the Lillooet River FSR.

It also advised road users that road closures will be put in effect, should the hazard level be upgraded to extreme.
