Highway 1 between Abbotsford and Chilliwack is expected to open on Thursday

BC Transport Minister Rob Fleming says the stretch of Highway 1 between Abbotsford and Chilliwack should reopen at some point Thursday.

During a briefing on Wednesday, Fleming said: “We are pleased to report that critical temporary repairs have now been completed and the water level continues to fall … We look forward to having this road open at some point tomorrow.”

He added that crews continue to monitor the situation and that the coming storm could change things.

Fleming says the updates will come through Drive BC.

The stretch of Highway 1 through Fraser Valley has been closed for about a week as the area is dealing with devastating floods.
