According to Minister Rob Fleming the Coquihalla will open to commercial truck traffic Monday, December 20th. 24 hours later Highway 3, known as the Yellowhead or Hope to Princeton Highway will reopen to all traffic. Highway 99 from Pemberton to Lillooet will also reopen to all traffic.
The Minister reminds people who decide to take Highways 3 or 99 to be prepared for winter driving conditions. He also reminded travelers the two highways are narrow, dark and steep, not at all like the Coquihalla.
