Highway 99 closed following vehicle incident near Pemberton

The highway is now open to single-lane alternating traffic, but drivers should expect delays.
Drive BC is advising motorists travelling on Highway 99 north of Whistler to expect major delays Wednesday.

Highway 99 was closed in both directions Wednesday afternoon, Nov. 23, following a vehicle incident on Suicide Hill between Soo Valley Road and Nairn Falls Provincial Park, south of Pemberton. 

A logging truck reportedly experienced issues on the hill resulting in the vehicle sliding sideways across both lanes of traffic. 

The highway opened to single-lane alternating traffic at around 1 p.m., about one kilometre south of Nairn Falls.

An assessment is in progress, and drivers are still advised to expect significant delays.
