Accident between Ross and American Creek roads is cause of closure, Drive BC states

Highway 1 north of Hope is once again open, to single lane alternating traffic, after an accident after 1 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 8 forced a full closure of the highway for hours.

The highway was closed at American Lake Road, with no estimated time of re-opening Drive BC stated shortly before 2 p.m. The closure was due to a vehicle incident between Ross Rd. and American Creek Rd.

Whether there are any injuries is not yet clear, the Hope Standard has reached out to the RCMP’s traffic services for further information.
