The TransCanada Highway was closed after another rock slide occurred north of the Yale Tunnel.

Highway crews shut down the highway at Hope and Boston Bar at approximately 7 p.m., Friday, February 4.

The highway was reopened to traffic at 10:30 a.m Saturday, February 5 after highway crews assessed the stability of the slope and removed the rock debris.

On Friday, January 7, the highway was also closed to traffic for five days when a rock face in the same area gave way and covered both sides of the highway, narrowly missing the driver of a small car and a trucker.
