Hwy 1: multiple jackknifes
Multiple transport trucks are believed to be jack-knifeed in an incident that closed the Trans-Canada Highway between Sicamous and Revelstoke overnight.
DriveBC first reported about 1 a.m. that the accident had closed the highway between Bowlin Road and Highway 23 South, east of Craigellachie.
A 40-kilometre section of the route was closed, however DriveBC reports as of 6:15 a.m. the route had reopened to single-lane alternating traffic.
Motorists are advised to expect delays.
Webcams show snowy conditions as of 6 am
DriveBC reports there was also another incident within the closure area during the purging of backed up highway traffic west of Revelstoke.
Motorists stuck in the closure reported multiple 18-wheelers jack-knifed near the Enchanted Forest.
“Westbound traffic is back up a great distance,” a reader tells Castanet.
Drivers are urged to watch for traffic control, slow down and drive to winter conditions.
