Highway 51 remains closed Wednesday after a rockslide cut off access to the only road leading into Telegraph Creek.
Crews and geotechnical engineers are on scene after a rockslide came down between Glenora Road and the Tahltan River Bridge, 19 kilometres east from Telegraph Creek, around 9 a.m. Tuesday morning. A detour is not available at this time.
Ministry of Transportation officials say there are no reports of injuries, and communication lines for Telegraph Creek remain open.
