Folks will again be able to travel along Highway 1 between Chilliwack and Langley via public transit now that the highway has reopened.
“With the reopening of Highway 1, BC Transit will be resuming operation of the entire route 66 Fraser Valley Express between Chilliwack and Langley, effective immediately,” BC Transit stated in a release Thursday, Nov. 25.
Today, Highway 1 reopened through between Chilliwack and Abbotsford at 2 p.m. after provincial authorities shut down the key route through the Valley on Monday, Nov. 15 due to flooding.
Due to expected congestion along route 66, customers can expect possible delays and longer than usual travel times, BC Transit said.
“The organization’s thoughts are with all those who have been impacted by the devastating flooding throughout the province. BC Transit will continue to support our communities with emergency assistance while maintaining reliable service for our customers.”
