UPDATE #2: DriveBC estimates that the Alaska Highway will be reopened in both directions at 9:00 a.m.

UPDATE: According to motorists travelling the Alaska Highway this morning, last night’s wind storm caused snow drifts several feet high to cover the highway surface in some spots. A detour around the incident is available via the 245 Road near the Kiskatinaw River Bridge and the Parkland Road.
