UPDATE: Trans-Canada Highway re-opens at Three Valley Gap

A crash involving a tractor-trailer unit has closed the Trans-Canada Highway west of Revelstoke Tuesday afternoon.

A tractor-trailer can be seen jack-knifed across the Trans-Canada Highway at Three Valley Gap in this highway webcam image.

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.
