Rockslide Closes Highway 16
Prince Georg e, B.C. – If you were planning on heading to Jasper this weekend, you may want to rethink those plans.
Highway 16 from Jasper to the West Gate of Jasper National Park is closed due to a rockslide this morning.
“The slide has blocked the Trans-Canada Yellowhead Highway (Highway 16 West) in both directions,” says Joseph Zebrowski of Parks Canada. “Emergency personnel are on the scene.”
No word yet on when the highway may reopen. For updates, check the Drive BC website.
