(UPDATE: Dec. 4 @ 12:15 pm) - Crews have managed to open a single lane of alternating traffic at the site of a "vehicle incident" near Christina Lake.
As a result, traffic is slowly getting through the area on Hwy 3.
Heavy delays can still be expected in the area, however.
That collision west of #ChristinaLake on #BCHwy3 that closed the Hwy is now open to single lane alternating traffic. Remember to please adjust your speeds for winter conditions. #Kootenays #Shiftintowinter pic.twitter.com/JxwGN5Hv5A— W Kootenay District (@TranBC_WestKoot) December 4, 2019
