What are cut blocks and closure zones?

A cut block is an area of forest that is going to be logged, has been logged or is actively being logged. Cut blocks offer useful clues about the state of roads around them as active or pending cut blocks indicate that the road conditions are in good shape to support logging operations. Click on any cut block on the map to view more information about which phase of logging it's in and when it last saw activity.

A look at the cut blocks. Purple represents pending, brown represents active and green represents completed logging activities.

Closure zones are areas of land that prohibit vehicle travel for fixed periods of time. Often mandated by law through the Wildlife Act. The Service Road Atlas will automatically monitor and post closure notices on all roads affected by these closure zones.

Two closure zones are visible on the map. Red represents an actively closed area while gray represents an inactive area to show case what roads would be affected.
