Have your travel plans changed for the holidays because of flooding and highway closures?

Floods stop holiday plans?

Casey Richardson

After most major highways were damaged by extreme flooding in November, the link between the Interior and the Lower Mainland remains in a fragile state.

While the worst is behind B.C. for flooding, there is a long rebuild ahead and smooth sailing on Southern Interior highways is a ways off.

Castanet hit the streets to ask if travel plans have changed for the holidays because of the flooding and highway closures.

From the people we spoke to, some have cancelled their plans to head down to the Lower Mainland, concerned over the state of the highways and risk of travel.

Others are staying local already and don't have to worry about hitting the road.
