Coquihalla highway reopens after avalanche control
Crews have completed blasting on the Coquihalla highway, which was closed from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m.
The Coquihalla highway reopened after scheduled helicopter avalanche control earlier today.
Highway 5 was closed between 9 a.m., PT and 1 p.m., PT Tuesday while crews blasted, to ensure a natural avalanche does not happen on the highway.
The Coquihalla has been closed at intervals in the last week due to a combination of avalanches, high avalanche risk, and scheduled avalanche control.
