The highway is still open, but it is down to single vehicle alternating traffic, noted DriveBC.
The MVI has damaged a power pole between Chimney Valley Road and Buckley Drive, which has resulted in a power outage to 1,254 customers from Chilcotin Estates Mobile Home Park to Kleena Kleene in the Chilcotin since 1:52 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 24.
BC Hydro is reporting a time of 9 p.m. as an estimated time when the power should be restored.
