Poor road conditions have shut down the Coquihalla northbound at the Great Bear Snowshed.
Transports began getting backed up as they put chains on at the Box Canyon pullout around 9 p.m. on Tuesday night, but why traffic wasn’t being let through wasn’t clear, according to drivers who called Global News.
At around 11:30 p.m., DriveBC finally tweeted that northbound traffic was being stopped due to several spun-out semis.
DriveBC does not report a time for the highway to be reopened and has not listed the event on its webpage with an update expected at 1 p.m.
Snowfall has begun to taper off.
