Highway 3 closed

Heavy snow is playing havoc on Highway 3.

DriveBC reports the highway is closed in both directions as the result of a vehicle incident between Garret Road and Saturday Creek — nine km west of Sunday Summit.

It says an assessment is in progress and the estimated time for re-opening is noon today.

Alternate routes are Highway 5 or Highway 1.

There’s a snowfall warning in effect for Highway 3 from Paulson Summit to Kootenay Pass where anywhere between 15 and 25 cm is expected.

The snow is expected to taper off to flurries by Friday morning.
