Golden Highway Update, Wednesday January 29

DriveBC reports limited visibility with fog between Glacier National Park western boundary and the western boundary of Yoho National Park, including the stretch of highway passing through Golden.

Additionally, watch for slippery sections along this same stretch of road.

Snow deposit removal between Glacier National park eastern boundary and Quartz Creek Bridge just west of Golden is causing up to 20 minute delays along Highway 1.

If you are travelling towards Revelstoke, there are planned power outages at the provincial snow sheds between MacDonald snowshed and Lanark snowshed, due to maintenance work on CP rail lines. The lights in the snowshed will be out until approximately 6:30 p.m. today.

Additionally in the same area, there will be maintenance between Albert Canyon chain up area and the Lanark snowshed, so watch for delays.

Watch for slippery sections along Highway 95 between Golden and Radium.
