The province is expected to announce that truck and other traffic between the lower mainland and Alberta will be temporarily diverted via Highway #3 while road repairs are effected along the TransCanada Highway.  Salmo may see a significant increase in traffic due to this diversion. Some of these truckers have never been through Highway 3, never mind over the Kootenay Pass, so please keep in mind that we should be both patient and vigilant while giving them lots of space when sharing the highway with them.

Watch this site for updates.
