Drivers can expect overnight delays between Prince Rupert and Chetwynd from Dec. 9-13, 2021.
During this time, large commercial vehicles will transport oversized cargo that requires a full closure on sections of the highway. This ensures the safe transport of cargo and the safety of motorists.
All closures are scheduled during times of expected low traffic volumes to reduce the impact on travellers.
Drivers can expect to see intermittent closures and related traffic disruptions on the following routes:
Highway 16 from Prince Rupert to Terrace on Thursday, Dec. 9, from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m.
Highway 16 from Terrace to Topley on Friday, Dec. 10, from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m.
