Coquihalla Highway closed due to ‘active and unfolding police incident,’ RCMP say

The Coquihalla motorway was closed in both directions because of an “ongoing and ongoing police incident,” according to the RCMP.

A statement Wednesday said the highway between Hope and Merritt, BC was closed

“A large number of police forces from surrounding areas are being sent to the Juliet Bridge area, just south of Merritt near the summit of Coquihalla,” the statement read.

“Any public in the area is asked to avoid the area and not post any police action online.”

In an interview, RCMP Sgt. Josh Roda declined to confirm more details about the incident but said it is not believed to be related a kidnapping and a series of shootings in Merritt, BC, this past week.

Drivers have been warned to expect delays of several hours. DriveBC says the detour for Hope is Highway 3 and the bypass for Merritt is Highway 5A to Highway 3.

More to come.
