Northwestern BC highway open again

A ROCK slide east of Prince Rupert that partially blocked Hwy16 has been cleared.

The slide, reported just before 1 pm, had reduced traffic to single lane on an alternating schedule.

The slide took place at Rainbow Pass, the height of land east of Prince Rupert just before Hwy16 winds down to run parallel to the Skeena River.
