PEMBERTON, BC July 12, 2016- Drivers can expect heavy traffic volumes and possible delays along the Sea to Sky Highway (Highway 99) between Horseshoe Bay and Pemberton, as concert goers make their way to and from the Pemberton Music Festival from Wednesday, July 13 to Monday, July 18.

No highway lane closures are planned during this period, but an increase in traffic volume is expected from July 13 to 18. Motorists are advised to plan their travel in advance, drive safely, and obey signs and traffic control personnel during this music-festival event.

There will be no paving work happening between Whistler and Pemberton on the Sea to Sky Highway (Highway 99) during the festival; from Thursday July 14 to Monday July 18 inclusive, all work will be stopped. There will be work on Wednesday, July 13 but crews will wrap up as soon as Festival camper load in begins to get heavy.

A temporary speed limit of 50 km/h has been implemented from July 6 to July 20 on Highway 99 from Pemberton to Mount Currie to provide additional safety for the festival workers, festival service vehicles and a temporary pedestrian bridge on the roadway.
