Coquihalla reopened after overnight closure

The Coquihalla northbound, from Hope to Merritt, has been reopened after it was closed for several hours overnight. 

Heavy snowfall, up to 30 centimetres, and an avalanche risk led to the closure before midnight. The southbound lanes remained open.

It was reopened at 3:30 in the morning.

A snowfall warning, that had been in effect over the past 4 days, was also lifted.
