Drive BC finally confirmed that a single lane is open along the southbound Coquihalla after a semi truck turned over between the Box Canyon and Portia chain up areas this morning. 

They still have no estimates for when the incident will be fully cleared though and warn of congestion along that route. 

There won't be another update until around 4 p.m.

There are still no estimates from Drive BC on when the southbound Coquihalla will reopen after a semi overturned this morning, however social media is showing that traffic is being allowed through. 

Dashcam footage posted by HarmanDeep Dhillon shows vehicles being allowed to pass the incident in the right lane.

The overturned truck that caused the delay was originally blocking all southbound lanes.

Crews are currently clearing the scene and there's no timeline for when the road will be fully reopened.

9:50 a.m.

Expect delays if you're heading to the Lower Mainland this weekend.

The southbound Coquihalla is closed between Hope and Merritt this morning following a motor vehicle incident. 

There is no estimated time of reopening yet, according to Drive BC as crews are still en route. However, cameras show traffic is severely backed up.
