Heading to/from Alaska soon?

If you heading through northern B.C. , check the road conditions .

After a dry winter and spring , the area ; Dawson Creek in particular ; is catching up on the rainfall they were missing . Floods and mudslides, over the past 36 hours have the road in questionable conditions , even closures ; hopefully not long . But check ahead , more rain in the forecast, and be aware that areas off the highway , could be soft and muddy.

LLoydU and a couple others are heading to AK in 2 days, it's going to take them 3 days or so to get to the WA/BC border. They only plan on traveling for 4 or 5 hours a day so maybe the roads will be cleared by then.

Pictures from yesterday , flooding in Dawson Creek and snow on the Pine Pass , about 120 miles south west of Dawson Creek.
Car in photo #1 , is actually on a city street, being washed over the sidewalk towards a creek bed.

Many other photos of road damage in the area , but no actual locations or road numbers , if I can get any further info on them I'll post those too.
