The Trans-Canada Highway has reopened in southeastern B.C.

A rock slide severed the route between Revelstoke and Golden yesterday evening, Oct. 24. 

The route reopened at about 12:30 p.m. today after geotechnical engineers assessed the slide and crews cleared the highway.

Traffic is heavy on the highway thanks to a backlog of vehicles.
