Trans-Canada closed due to avalanche risk

The Trans-Canada Highway is closed in both directions through part of the Fraser Canyon because of the danger of avalanches.

The highways department says the route is closed from Boston Bar to the junction with Highway 12 near Lytton.

Drive B.C. said via Twitter that conditions are expected to remain unstable possibly until Friday.

Drivers are being told to use the Coquihalla Highway instead.
