Highway 19 south of Port McNeill is open Saturday afternoon, after a closure due to downed lines blocked both directions of traffic.

Drive B.C. reported the incident just before 12 p.m. and said it was between Spring Hill Road and the Reload Railway S Overpass, just 14-Kilometres south of the town.

The road was cleared around 1:30 p.m.
