Highway 1 has reopened to westbound traffic near Bridal falls.

The highway closed Friday night due to a transport truck that crashed and associated fuel spill.

The RCMP was unable to provide details on how many vehicles were involved in the crash.

However, police said the road was so slippery due to rain and fuel that officers were having trouble walking on it.

Global News has requested comment from the Ministry of Environment regarding potential environmental impacts.
