LATEST REPORTS say Highway 16 west of Terrace toward Prince Rupert is open.

But the surface is compact snow with slushy sections, making driving particularly challenging.

And in some areas, water is pooling on the highway as snow melts because of rising temperatures.

East of Terrace on Highway 16 a travel advisory is in effect due to the rough road surface and compact snow.

One driver described the road surface as extremely bumpy, resembling a washboard.
