LYTTON, B.C. —Update: Highway 12 has reopened nine kilometres north of Lytton following a rockslide Monday.

Earlier: A rockslide has severed Highway 12 between Lytton and Lillooet until further notice.

The rocks and muck came down yesterday just nine kilometres north of Lytton, forcing travellers to make a lengthy detour via highways 1 and 99 through Cache Creek.

Engineers are assessing the situation this morning. Environment Canada has also posted snowfall warnings for the Coquihalla Highway between Hope and Merritt, advising that as much as 15 centimetres of snow fell at the summit overnight and a further 10 centimetres is expected before the system weakens later today.
