The Squamish-Lillooet Regional District (SLRD) is advising drivers of a closure on Highway 99 scheduled to begin on Monday.

Construction will continue on the highway in the area of the Ten Mile Slide, 16km north of Lillooet according to a release issued by the SLRD. Soil anchors have already been installed to stabilize the area that saw a landslide in the fall.

Crews will now work to restore two lanes of travel through the effected region. Currently the area is open to single lane alternating traffic with a 50% legal load limit between Fountain Valley Road to Pavilion-Clinton Road.

The Ten Mile Slide area will be closed from March 20th to 31st from 7am to 11am and 1pm to 5pm. Flaggers will remain on-site 24 hours a day, and the area will maintain single-lane alternating traffic outside of the closure hours.

The SLRD notes that emergency vehicles and school buses will be accommodated.
