Mudslides slow traffic on Highways 3, 31

DriveBC reporting that Highway 3, 10 kilometers west of Creston, is now open to single lane alternating traffic following a mudslide Saturday.

The mudslide happened three kilometers west of Kootenay Pass east gate.

The deluge of precipitation during the past 48 hours also caused a mudslide 12 kilometers north of Coffee Creek Bridge.

The highway has also been reduced to single-lane, alternating traffic.

Friday, a strong frontal system is approaching BC from the southwest spread precipitation to most of southern BC making travel through the passes, including the Blueberry Paulson and Kootenay Pass, treacherous.
