Overturned semi closes Inland Island Highway northbound at Jubilee

Detour in place via Jubilee Parkway and Highway 19A

An overturned semi truck has caused a significant detour around most of Campbell River this morning.

Traffic heading northbound on the Inland Island Highway must exit at Jubilee Parkway and drivers heading toward the highway on Jubilee Parkway is being stopped at the Dogwood Street intersection and are being asked which way they’re heading once they get to the highway and being turned around if they say “north.”

Southbound traffic through the area has been reduced to a single lane.

Crews are currently on scene unloading the overturned truck, but there’s no word yet on when the highway will be re-opened.
