Highway 1 between Abbotsford and Hope opens today
Thursday, December 2, 2021 10:45 AM
Preparations are underway to reopen Highway 1 between Abbotsford and Hope today.
In the Sumas area between Abbotsford to Chilliwack, crews are working to disassemble the tiger dam that was set up to mitigate flood damage. This stretch of highway is expected to open this afternoon. For the most current updates, check: DriveBC.ca
Highway 1, just east of Highway 9 to Hope, is also expected to open this afternoon. Drivers should expect slower speed limits, delays and traffic pattern changes through the Bridal Falls area.
These sections of Highway 1 do not fall under the Province’s travel restrictions order. However, drivers are asked to limit travel to essential purposes only while cleanup and repairs continue.
The highway infrastructure remains vulnerable following recent storms. The ministry continues to monitor the weather and the performance of the highway. People should be aware that highways affected by severe weather could close at any time if conditions change.
