Highway 1 closure through Sumas Prairie

THE Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure is advising drivers that Highway 1 in the Fraser Valley will be closed in both directions as of 7 p.m. on Monday, November 15.

The highway closure is between Highway 11 and No. 3 Road, and is necessary due to the flood warning on the Sumas River.

Highway 7 also remains closed due to flooding and debris.

Ministry staff will continue to monitor the highway and will reopen it as soon as there is no threat to safety.

The ministry is asking drivers to obey all signage and traffic control personnel and check DriveBC for updates.
