Motorists are advised that Highway 1 east of Chilliwack is now open to two lanes westbound and one lane eastbound, after three mudslides closed the highway Thursday morning near Bridal Falls. The ministry will provide an update when all lanes have been reopened.
The maintenance contractor will remain on site with a single lane closure, rebuilding the shoulders and working to clear the significant amount of debris that remains alongside the highway. Motorists are advised to expect delays and watch for traffic personnel and flaggers in the area.
The ministry would like to thank the public for their patience while this work continues.
Motorists are also advised to check DriveBC for the latest updates and plan their route accordingly.
