As fire conditions can change quickly, the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure advises drivers that provincial highways may close with limited notice.
Wildfire activity is increasing in the B.C. Interior, and travel on some provincial highways is being affected.
Non-essential travel to and within fire-affected areas is also being discouraged to help avoid traffic congestion on evacuation routes.
If you must travel on Interior highways adjacent to wildfires, make sure you are prepared for possible delays or closures.
Travel with a full tank of gas, food, water and other emergency supplies.
For your safety, and to ensure you do not impede firefighting efforts, do not stop along the highway, and travel directly to your destination.
Drivers are advised to monitor DriveBC for up-to-date information on highway closures.
