Cleanup work opens B.C. highways
B.C. MINISTRY OF TRANSPORTATION - Crews work to stabilize a riverbank on Highway 3 in B.C. The highway was reopened Monday after crews worked to assess its safety and cleared debris.

HOPE, B.C. – After extensive efforts to clean up and assess B.C.’s damaged highways after intense rainstorms, officials announced Highway 3 and Highway 99 have reopened.

Highway 3 between Hope and Princeton is open for essential travel only. Due to ongoing cleanup and repairs, drivers can expect delays on this section of Highway 3.

Highway 99 between Pemberton and Lillooet is open for essential travel only. Vehicle weight restrictions are also in place. Only vehicles with a licensed gross vehicle weight under 14,500 kilograms are permitted on this section of Highway 99.

Essential purposes for travel are defined in the travel restrictions order through the Emergency Program Act. For a list of essential purposes for travel, visit: www.gov.bc.ca/floodresponse

Highway 1 between Abbotsford and Chilliwack remains closed, as does Highway 1 from just east of Highway 9 and Hope, through the Bridal Falls area.

The province noted that another storm is predicted to hit the south coast in the coming days so more closures could occur in the future.
