Wyssen Avalanche Control Revelstoke BC. 

The control stations are the first of their kind to be implemented in North America. They allow technicians to monitor avalanche conditions remotely on a 24 hour basis. The towers are set up on a 15-degree angle, and hang over common avalanche paths. When they deploy a charge, it drops from a 10-meter-long rope. The charge detonates while suspended above the snow’s surface. Using these new towers again this year will decrease traffic delays during the day. Unlike other kinds of control systems, they are not restricted by weather conditions.

January 23/2020 avalanche techs and our Revelstoke road crew conducted avalanche control west of Revelstoke near Summit Lake and Victor Lake.  Check out the video.

Part of the Paulson Pass highway slipped down to the creek below in 2017. Our Grand Forks crews, along with sub-contractors worked together to rebuild the base. Adding blast rock to the toe of the slope to strengthen the lifts all the way to paving the lane that was lost.  In this drone video overview you can see the rock hauled from the blast site to the slope failure.

The B.C. Road Builders and Heavy Construction Association recently held its Annual General Meeting in Victoria, B.C., where changes were announced to the "Slow Down, Move Over" regulations to ensure higher safety standards for both workers on the province's roads and the drivers using the province's vehicular infrastructure.

Slow Down Move Over For Yellow Lights. Now includes Tow Trucks and highway maintenance units. Watch for Amber Blue in Ontario and Amber in British Columbia when crews at work.

While the tow plow may look very wide and difficult to handle, it is more responsive than the traditional wing plows; the operator can quickly maneuver around obstacles on the road like signs or parked cars. This is fairly new technology, and you can expect to see them on selected B.C. and Ontario highways this winter. Emcon is the biggest user of Tow Plows in Canada!
