The Alaska Highway is again open at Contact Creek as a one-lane detour has been created, according to the British Columbia government. The detour is at km 900 for southbound traffic leaving Watson Lake and km 897 for northbound traffic leaving Fort Nelson. There is a pilot car guiding groups of vehicles through the detour.
The highway washed out on Friday, leaving a gaping hole in the main road to Alaska from the Lower 48. The Cassiar Highway has been advised as an alternative, but the Alcan is now passable, although likely to be slow.
