As of 4 p.m. Pacific time, the Trans-Canada Highway is closed in both directions between Revelstoke and Golden due to high avalanche hazard.

DriveBC estimates re-opening by midnight tonight, and is expressing "moderate" confidence in that estimate.

The next scheduled update from DriveBC is 8 p.m. Please check there for updates.

Note: this story will not be updated when the highway re-opens.
