Highway 1 reopens from Abbotsford to Hope

Highway 1 between Abbotsford and Hope is now open in all lanes as of Thursday afternoon (Dec. 2).

DriveBC reports the highway is open between exit 90 at McCallum Road and exit 109 at Yale Road.

The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure says drivers should expect slower speed limits, delays and traffic-pattern changes through the Bridal Falls area.

Highway 1 from Chilliwack to Hope is not subject to travel restrictions.

“However, drivers are asked to limit travel to essential purposes only while cleanup and repairs continue,” the ministry states.

The ministry says highway infrastructure remains vulnerable, and they are continuing to monitor the weather and the performance of the highway. Commercial vehicles over 63,500 kilograms are prohibited.

“People should be aware that highways affected by severe weather could close at any time if conditions change.”

The Tiger Dam across Highway 1 at Cole Road has been dismantled.

Drivers are advised to check DriveBC for the most recent updates.
