UPDATE: Hwy 1 set to reopen between Sicamous and Golden this morning

(UPDATE: Dec. 6 @ 6:30 am) - A massive stretch of Hwy 1 through the BC Interior is scheduled to reopen this morning.

The highway was shut down between Revelstoke and Golden around 1 pm Tuesday for avalanche control.

It was initially meant to reopen at 5 pm, but that timeline was pushed back to 9 pm and then overnight.

Late Tuesday evening, the portion of Hwy 1 between Sicamous and Revelstoke was shut down as well, also due to avalanche control.

According to DriveBC, both sections of Hwy 1 will reopen at 7 am.


(UPDATE: Dec. 5 @ 5:15 pm) – DriveBC is reporting that Hwy 1 between Revelstoke and Golden will remain closed until 9 pm.

The highway is currently closed due to avalanche control work.

Unfortunately, no detour is available during the closure.

Be sure to keep an eye on DriveBC for updates this evening.


(Original story: Dec. 5 @ noon) – Anyone travelling east on Hwy 1 Tuesday afternoon is being advised to prepare for a lengthy delay due to avalanche control.
