Travellers stranded on Highway 4 Wednesday when blasting during construction on Kennedy Hill brought down more rock than expected.

UPDATE: Drive BC reports Highway 4 at Kennedy Lake has reopened.

UPDATE: The delay to get traffic moving was much shorter, although delays are expected at Kennedy Lake on Highway 4.

The highway was closed around 8 p.m. for debris, but about 40 minutes later, Drive BC said the road was reopened to single-lane alternating traffic.

The debris closed the highway between Toquart Bay Road and Nahmit Forest Service Road.

It’s become a familiar problem, as drivers were caught a the closure for many hours Wednesday after overnight blasting brought down more rock than expected early in the morning.

Crews are working on a $40 million project to make the highway safer.

This is also the third time in a month the highway was shut down under similar circumstances.

Just over three weeks ago the highway was closed for 10 hours because of debris on the road.
