Trans-Canada BC to reopen after rockslide

VANCOUVER – Road crews worked feverishly this weekend to reopen for today a main throughway of the Trans-Canada Highway that was blocked after a rockslide.

According to Canadian Press, no one was injured in the slide about 10 km east of Golden, but the incident did shut down the main southern route between B.C. and Alberta for two days.

The slide had forced a detour via Highway 95 at Golden and Highway 93 at Radium Hot Springs, adding about 200 km to the trip, a B.C. transport ministry spokesperson said.
