Road cleared from sea to sky

PORTEAU COVE, B.C. — The Sea-to-Sky Highway reopened to traffic after a massive rockslide in B.C., but traffic along the route is still subject to delays from construction projects.

The highway closed on July 29 when a rockslide deposited up to 16,000 cubic metres of debris onto both lanes of the highway between Porteau Cove and the Furry Creek Bridge. Traffic was closed in both directions until the evening of Aug. 2.

The Sea-to-Sky Highway is also the only direct route between Vancouver and Whistler, where construction crews are busy preparing venues for the Winter Olympic Games in 2010.
