REVELSTOKE, B.C. — The Trans Canada Highway has been cleared following a mudslide that blocked traffic in southeastern British Columbia Sunday.

DriveBC says the slide occurred between Revelstoke and Sicamous near the Kay Falls Bridge.

The road was completely closed with crews assessing the situation at 7 a.m. before a single lane was opened to alternating traffic by mid-morning.

The slide followed a weather system that moved west Saturday, bringing heavy rain on the coast and snow to some inland areas.

Environment Canada has lifted its special weather statements for most of B.C. Sunday morning.
