Hwy. 1 reopens to four-lane traffic

It took some doing, but Hwy. 1 between Hope and Chilliwack in once gain fully open in both directions.

The highway was closed last Thursday morning after three mudslides near Bridal Falls all but swallowed the pavement.

A maintenance contractor was onsite yesterday to rebuild the shoulders of the highway and to remove the remainder of debris from the area in order to re-open all four lanes of the highway to traffic, the province is reporting.

Single lane closures will be put in place as required to complete any remaining work and to monitor the operation of the culverts.
