KAMLOOPS — The provincial Transportation Ministry says it's confident the site of a rockslide south of Kamloops does not require any further stabilization.

The slide came down over Highway 5A Wednesday (Oct. 31) at about 1:00 p.m., partially covering the southbound lane about 10 to 15 kilometres south of Kamloops.

No one was injured, and traffic control routed motorists around the slide debris in the open lane.

Argo Road Maintenance worked through the night to clear the debris, and a ministry spokesperson says the company removed about 2,700 cubic metres of rocks and dirt from the road.

The spokesperson says the highway was fully re-opened this morning, and no further stabilization work is needed.
