Highway 1 is closed between Hemlock Grove Boardwalk and Beaver Valley Rd for additional avalanche control, with an estimated time of re-opening at 1 p.m.

Anticipate up to 20 minute delays out by Quartz Creek FSR just west of Golden, as maintenance in the area continues. The construction is expected to wrap up this weekend, according to DriveBC.

Limited visibility due to fog has been reported along Highway 1 just west of Golden, heading towards Revelstoke, starting at the western boundary of Glacier National Park.

Compact snow is causing slippery sections between the western boundary of Glacier National Park, extending past Golden to the western boundary of Yoho National Park, with slushy sections as well.
