Expect occasional Road Closures on Highway 16 owing to Avalanche Control work


Travellers with plans to travel Highway 16 between Prince Rupert and Terrace should keep an eye on the Drive BC website and twitter feed, to keep up on when the road is closed and open, that as work continues on Avalanche control along the route ten kilometres west of Terrace.

The Most recent advisory was provided at 11:19 this morning noting of the operations underway until 3PM

Travel along the highway has been a challenging thin this week, with conditions at times requiring extensive closures,  owing to hazardous driving conditions which did bring a number of accidents at the early part of this week.

The highway appears to be in much better shape today, with some extensive work from highway crews, with Highway cameras finally showing a bit of pavement to drive on, compared to the compact snow of the week.




Follow Drive BC from their website and twitter feed.
