Hwy 16 between Prince Rupert and Terrace closed due to rockslide

Rocks in the road and damage from the slide will have the road closed at least until Sunday morning

If you’re thinking about trying to get into or out of Prince Rupert tonight, think again.

A rockslide this afternoon between 50 and 51 kilometres west of Terrace has Hwy 16 closed at least until tomorrow morning (Sunday Oct. 23) and probably longer with very large rocks in the road and damage to the highway from the fall.
