Motorists are advised of slippery sections

UPDATE: Sunday. Oct. 30

DriveBC is warning motorist to be cautious of slippery sections in the Heckman Pass, otherwise the highway to and from Bella Coola is open Sunday.

The highway was closed due to hazardous conditions.

***

Highway 20 now has a travel advisory for both directions in the Heckman Pass area due to high avalanche hazard.

The highway had been closed overnight and motorists are continued to avoid non-essential travel.

Closures may still result with short notice due to flooding and rock slides.

There is adverse weather between Hunlen Falls Turner Lakes Trailhead and Rainbow Range Trailhead for 19.7 km – 34 km east of Firvale to 38 km west of Anahim Lake, noted DriveBC.

On Thursday, Dawson Road Maintenance issued a travel advisory for that stretch of the highway due to anticipated heavy rains and falling rocks.
