Hwy. 99 closures resume north of Squamish


Periodic traffic delays of up to 20 minutes are expected on Hwy. 99 between Squamish and Whistler beginning next Tuesday, Sept. 6, so that crews can carry out tree-clearing and grubbing work as part of the highway upgrade project.

The grubbing and tree clearing is expected to wrap up about 500 metres north of Brew Creek in late October.

Regularly scheduled highway closures are expected to resume in late September.

Expect delays of up to 10 minutes between Whistler and Squamish Tuesday through Thursday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Friday from 9 a.m. to noon.

South of Squamish, motorists should expect separate delays between Horseshoe Bay and Lions Bay and Lions Bay to Squamish. Between Horseshoe Bay and Lions Bay, delays of up to 20 minutes are expected during the day from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., while nighttime delays of up to 30 minutes are expected from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.
