Highway 97 has been closed 3km north of the Junction of Highway 2 in Dawson Creek.

CN Railroad is replacing a piece of track at the railroad crossing near Dawson Creek. The crossing covers the full length of the road, resulting in the closure.

But the closure stretches all the way to Farmington, to accommodate detours for larger trucks in the area.

Heavy traffic will be directed down the Mason Semple to Highway 97S and vehicles of 1-ton or less will be directed down the 223 road and the 210 road. 

The road should be re-opened at around 6pm on Tuesday evening.
