A section of Highway 1 through the southern Interior has reopened nearly two months after it was torn apart by slides and washouts.

The 80 kilometre section between Lytton and Spences Bridge reopened this morning to general travel and some commercial traffic after it was damaged by severe storms in November.

Parts of the route are cut to single lane travel and the Transportation Ministry is warning motorists to watch for advisories and expect delays.

The Thompson Nicola operations manager for the Highways Ministry says the upgrades are far from over and work will continue through the winter as crews try to restore Highway 1 to its condition before the mid-November floods.
