Coquihalla Closed Due To Forest Fires

Coquihalla Closed Between Hope and Meritt due to forest fires

BC: The #5 Coquihalla is closed between Hope and Merritt, as forest fires are getting closer to the highway, and smoke dangerously obscuring driver vision. (Thank you, Md Momin, for this pic taken on the weekend!).
Detour options are #1 Trans-Canada north or the #3 Crowsnest East.

August 21 Update

The Coquihalla has fully reopened. Some smokey conditions along the highway may still occur.
