UPDATE: Hwy 16 open in both directions

The highway was closed yesterday from Terrace to Prince Rupert due to high avalanche danger

DriveBC has lifted the closure of Hwy 16 between Terrace and Prince Rupert.

The highway was shut down in both directions yesterday due to high avalanche danger. With both directions now open to travel, DriveBC is cautioning against compact snow and slippery sections. Construction 16 km east of Rainbow Pass may cause single-lane, alternating traffic with up to 20-minute delays.

The highway closure came as a period of prolonged heavy snowfall hit the Terrace area as series of storms yesterday moved onto the north coast of B.C.
