The Malahat Highway was completely shut down Monday morning at Tunnel Hill due to a rock slide.

The road, which connects Victoria with the rest of Vancouver Island, was blocked in both directions.

WATCH:  Paul Russell tells Global News why the Malahat is no longer adequate and a new route should be considered.

A pickup truck driving in the northbound lane was hit by a falling rock. There was minor damage to the vehicle.

This section of the Trans-Canada highway is often shut down. The last closure was on Aug. 22 because of a fatal collision.

The road was re-opened sometime after 11 a.m.
