CHILLIWACK (NEWS 1130) — Highway 1 between Abbotsford and Chilliwack has reopened in both directions.
Crews were forced to shut down Highway 1 between the Lickman Exit and Sumas Exit due to blowing snow and whiteout conditions Wednesday morning.
The weather created whiteout conditions along that stretch, making it unsafe for drivers.
