Coquihalla to close for avalanche control
Drive BC says that sections of the Coquihalla between Hope and Merritt will be shut down for avalanche control.
The closures will take place between 11am and 3pm today, between Exit 202 and Exit 228, covering about 25 kilometres. Drivers are asked to avoid the area and use alternate routes during the closure.
Highway 3 is currently closed due to a high avalanche hazard between West Avalanche Gate and East Avalanche Gate for 18.0 kilometres. It is expected to re-open at 6pm.
