Highway Thru Hell focuses on a team of drivers who work for Jamie Davis, along with several other heavy recovery operations fighting to keep the roads open in some of the most dangerous working conditions ever seen on TV. The Coquihalla and nearby highways through BC's Cascade Mountains have some of the most difficult and fast changing road conditions anywhere. When it's snowing hard up top on the summit of ‘The Coq', 1200 metres below its pounding rain in The Fraser Valley. Add to that, Canada's busiest trucking route to the West Coast, Highway 1 (Trans Canada Hwy), and you have the ‘Bermuda Triangle' of trucking. Police and highway maintenance crews depend on Highway Thru Hell's heavy rescue operators to respond at a moment's notice in the worst conditions. In between the winter storms, the teams ‘off road' skills are put to the test. The rugged terrain near Hope, British Columbia dishes out some of the most unique and challenging recovery jobs over steep cliffs, down deep ravines and even in bodies of water. Highway Thru Hell is ultimately a series about man versus Mother Nature and the toughest men in the towing business being pushed to their breaking point. The stakes are high - lives, the economy and thousands of jobs depend on the highways staying open, and the last line of defense is Heavy Rescue.
A hardy crew of heavy towers working day and night on the most unforgiving highway in the world, the Coq, to battle some of the most dangerous and unpredictable situations. Through nasty weather conditions, tangled wrecks, and unforeseen problems, the crew is pushed to their limits to maintain one goal: to keep traffic moving. With majority of traffic semi-trucks, the job proves one of the most difficult and deadly in the world. Can they do it?
Jamie flies to Chatanooga to pickup a truck with a rotating boom that he's impatiently waiting for. The crew deals with two tough to flip turnovers loaded with lumber and wine.
Jamie brings one of his young boys along on an "easy" job only to see three more trucks crash during the job. A unknown load in a wrecked truck leads to an embarrassing debut for the rotator. Jamie has trouble with son Brandon's work ethic and new earrings.
Jamie's crew struggles with undersized equipment while overhead power lines threaten. A new driver learns the ropes though a mishap or two and turns up missing when the weather turns. After a long shift Jamie gives his team a break then is promptly faced with a two semi wreck on his own.
As his crew loses jobs to competitors, Jamie recalls the event that make him so competitive.
Even tow crews and snowplows can't work when avalanches start. But once the avalanche risk is averted Jamie risks his precious rotator to lift a semi up a cliff without damaging it.
A car lift leads to no end of frustration. Jamie questions his son Brandon's priorities but Dad is impressed when he get's a taste of Brandon's world.
Seems when it's not snow it's rock slides and them boulders hurt. But rock or snow make no difference to the highway department. They still want the roads reopen right quick.
Spring mean a drop in business and Jamie is worried about costs and unpaid bills. Layoffs seem inevitable. On the mountain a mail truck means special challenges which has Adam linking about quitting.
