A section of Highway 97 between Mackenzie and Chetwynd has been re-opened to traffic after a washout closed the road.
The road was closed in both directions 17 kilometres north of Callahazon Creek from about 6:30 am until approximately 2:15 pm Saturday.
Officials say Highway 97 is open to single-lane alternating traffic for now, but it’s unclear how long traffic will be reduced.
Heavy rain across the South Peace region has left many rivers and streams running high.
A flood watch has been continued for the areas around the Pine Pass, Mackenzie, and Chetwynd..
