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.
