DriveBC lifts travel advisory for drivers travelling Highway 99

Hwy 99 cleared at slide

UPDATE 12:28 p.m.

DriveBC has updated the status of Highway 99, stating that the road has been cleared in both directions at Fountain Valley Rd.


ORIGINAL 5:00 a.m.

If you're thinking of travelling on Highway 99, be aware a portion of the road is closed due to ongoing slope activity at the Ten Mile slide site.

DriveBC has issued an advisory to drivers that Highway 99 is currently closed approximately 15km north of Lillooet, between Fountain Valley Road and Sallus Creek Road.

Accelerated movement at the slide site over the last 24 hours has significantly reduced safety. 

Ministry staff and geotechnical engineers continue to monitor activity at the site using electronic monitoring equipment. The road will be reopened once movement has subsided and Highway 99 is once again safe for travel.

An alternative route is available using highways 12, 1 and 97. Drivers should continue to check DriveBC.ca for up to date information on highway travel.
