LYTTON - It's been four days since a rock slide closed Highway 12 between Hope and Lilooet, and the road is now fully open.

Drive B.C. says the section of highway located 14 kilometres north of Lytton that was closed on Monday Feb. 20, is now clear.

The highway was reopened to single lane, alternating traffic yesterday morning, as crews continued to clear the debris from the slide.
