BC Hydro will be doing slope stabilization work on the rock face next to the Revelstoke Dam starting Sept. 3, and is warning motorists to expect delays of up to 30 minutes.

The actual slope stabilization work will likely begin next year, but starting on Sept. 3 crews will be preparing the work site for the project.

The delays will be on Highway 23 North very near the dam. Work will be ongoing from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.

The project is forecast to last about two months.
