Travellers on the Fraser Canyon, Hwy. 1 can expect major delays north of Hope.

A vehicle incident at American Creek Rd. has closed the road. Traffic control crews are on hand but drivers are advised to detour via Hwy. 3 or Hwy. 5 if possible.

The road is estimated to be cleared and reopened by 11:00 a.m. Feb. 16.

Changing temperatures and winter storms have created slick driving conditions on many of the Interior’s highways and drivers are advised to use caution, ensuring they are properly equipped for winter driving.
