A mudslide closed Highway 7 east of Agassiz early Wednesday (Dec. 1) but single lane traffic was getting through within an hour of the incident.
Drive BC first reported Highway 7 closed, in both directions at about 7 a.m., due to a mudslide between Green Road and Lophet Road for 0.9 km in the District of Kent.
School District #78 closed its schools at 8 a.m. “In the last hour Highway 7 has closed due to ongoing weather conditions. As a result, we have decided to close the entire district.”
But then after 7:40 a.m. DriveBC reported that they managed to open the roadway to single lane alternating traffic.
