The Trans-Canada Highway, near Field, B.C. should re-open to two lane traffic as early as Thursday.
The highway was closed in both directions October 24th after a major rock slide and, after some major cleanup, it reopened to single-lane alternating traffic last Thursday.
Work continues to stabilize the rock face and prepare the highway for eventual two-way traffic flow.
Geotechnical assessments are ongoing to ensure the safety of workers and motorists.
Officials say motorists should still expect occasional single lane alternating traffic and periodic delays of up to 1 hour between 8 a.m. and 10 p.m. from November 2 to November 4.
In addition, a full road closure of 3-4 hours will be required at a date and time to be determined later this week for a large rock blast that will further stabilize the rock face.
Motorists wishing to avoid delays can take the alternate route via Hwy 95 and Hwy 93S through Kootenay National Park.
