B.C. floods: Busy stretch of Highway 1 in British Columbia is set to reopen | FULL

CA, 26 Nov 2021
One of the busiest stretches of highway in British Columbia is set to reopen at 2 p.m. Thursday after being closed for more than a week.

Highway 1 between Abbotsford and Chilliwack has been deemed safe for vehicles and will be accessible for all vehicles starting Thursday afternoon.

Crews have worked faster than expected, pushing up the reopening between McCallum Road and Yale Road West from the estimated reopening time of 9 p.m.

The province decided not to limit access to essential vehicles only as there are enough lanes open to facilitate all travellers.

The road has been closed for a week and a half after it was engulfed by floodwaters during a historic storm. Crews had to wait until water levels receded before being able to do the safety assessments needed to open the road, the province said.
