The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure says it is “proactively” closing Freeway 3 between Hope and Princeton on Saturday (November 26) afternoon.
Freeway 99 will also be closed at that time amongst Pemberton and Lillooet, as will Highway 1 in the Fraser Canyon.
“The specific time and period of closures will depend on the weather,” the ministry reported in a news release.
The closures coincide with the second of a few atmospheric rivers hitting the B.C. West Coastline right up until Tuesday (December 1).
In addition, Highway 1 concerning Popkum and Hope will also be shut due to reservoir releases
