Highways 16 and 35, which are main arterial connectors, are maintained by the Province of British Columbia utilizing a private contactor. The contractor is responsible for plowing, sanding, pothole repair, and general upkeep. The Village of Burns Lake Public Works maintains the curbs, gutters, and underground infrastructure within the Highway 16 corridor. All other roads and streets within municipal boundaries are maintained fully by the Village of Burns Lake Public Works crew. This includes snow removal, sanding, ditching, pavement patching, repair, and replacement. Street lighting is a combination of the responsibility of the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, BC Hydro, and the Village of Burns Lake. To report a light outage within the municipal boundaries, please contact the Village Office.
The Village of Burns Lake continually strives to provide the citizens of our community with an exceptional level of service in relation to the maintenance of our public thoroughfares, parking lots and pedestrian corridors during the winter months.
