November 18, 2021 – Rail lines between Kamloops and Vancouver remain closed as both CN and CP crews and engineering teams continue to clear debris and conduct repairs at multiple locations. A timeline for the resumption of rail operations to the west coast is currently unavailable. Vessel delays and heightened anchorage demand due to disrupted terminal operations are expected. Flooding impacts on highways remain severe and widespread throughout southwestern B.C. The intermittent opening of one highway route allowed some passenger traffic to flow out of the impacted areas towards Vancouver. All highways remain closed to non-essential traffic as work crews continue with reconstruction and repairs. Damage assessments of roadway infrastructure are ongoing. We will continue to monitor the situation and keep you informed on any new developments as they arise.
