Another potential headache for B.C. drivers on Tuesday, as Highway 1 was closed in both directions from Lytton to just outside of Cache Creek.
Drive BC said the highway was closed due to a mudslide between Junction Highway 12 in Lytton and Airport Road, about four kilometres south of Cache Creek.
No detour was available, nor was an estimated time of reopening.
Drive BC said it is still waiting for a geotechnical assessment to be done on the slide.
In addition, Highway 12 is closed in both directions between Six Mile Road and Pine Ridge Road for 30 kilometres (Lillooet) and an assessment was still in progress.
There was no detour immediately available.
The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure said crews worked through the night to clear as much debris as possible.
This closure comes as the Coquihalla Highway between Merritt and Hope remains closed due to a huge wildfire burning nearby.
