ORIGINAL: 11:45 a.m.

The Trans-Canada Highway is expected to reopen this afternoon, following a large rockslide on Thursday near Spences Bridge.

The highway has been closed six kilometres east of the community since Thursday afternoon, when massive chunks broke free of a rock face and came crashing down on the highway, striking a tractor-trailer.

DriveBC reports an estimated time of reopening as 3 p.m.

Meanwhile, traffic has been detoured via Highway 12 to Lytton, Highway 8 to Ashcroft and Highway 5 to Kamloops.
