Several vehicles were held up in their travels, and lengthy delays are still expected. There is also single lane traffic at kilometre 1098.
It’s a similar situation between Haines Junction and Destruction Bay with single lane traffic between kilometers 16-38 and 16-43. Motorists are also being warned the highway could be closed on short notice as crews continue to deal with flood damage.
According to CBC North, when the highway reopened last night at 7:30 p.m., commercial trucks were the first to be let through, and then private traffic, with some RVs waiting until this morning.
There is now a temporary single lane of gravel, and crews will now start working on a more permanent two-lane path for traffic to detour on while the areas that were washed out are repaired.
