For anyone planning to travel this weekend to the Lower Mainland, Highway 1 remains closed in both directions six kilometres east of Spences Bridge due to a rock slide Thursday with an estimated time of opening around 3 p.m. Friday afternoon.
The rock slide occurred just after 1 p.m., taking out a large semi-truck, but the driver walked away unharmed.
DriveBC is listing various detours including an east bound traffic detour via Highway 12 in Lytton to Highway 99 north to Highway 97 or Highway 8 to Highway 97c to Ashcroft or Highway 5 to Kamloops.
West bound traffic detour via Highway 1 to Kamloops then Highway 5 or Highway 99 to Highway 5 to Lytton then to Highway 1.
