The Trans-Canada Highway has re-opened at Three Valley Gap following a two hour closure Tuesday afternoon.
The highway was closed after a tractor-trailer jack knifed just west of the Three Valley Gap hotel at around 12:30 p.m.
The closure caused traffic to back-up for several kilometres and DriveBC says to expect heavy traffic volumes until traffic clears up.
