Coquihalla Highway re-opens between Hope and Merritt after avalanche control
The Coquihalla Highway was closed this morning between Hope and Merritt for avalanche control.
It was expected to stay closed until 11 a.m., but has now re-opened.
Snow had been building above the highway, creating a potential hazard so helicopters were used to reduce the risk, by triggering controlled snowslides.
In the meantime, drivers were being told to re-route around the area.
