Around 3 p.m. Friday afternoon, the RCMP received information of a snow slide on Highway 3 near the bottom of Cory Hill approximately 20 kms east of Christina Lake which has closed the road in both directions.
No vehicles were trapped or damaged during the incident and Emcon is proceeding to the scene to begin clearing the road. The slide is estimated at approximately three feet deep.
The public is being asked to avoid the area until the scene has been cleared. An additional release will be made once the road is back open for safe travel.
