On June 9, Squamish RCMP received several complaints of rocks and debris falling on Highway 99 in various locations spanning from Strachan Point to Porteau Cove. The rockslide on the highway shut down the north-bound lane for few hours.
In a press release Squamish RCMP sent yesterday, police said one vehicle was damaged after a rock smashed through the sunroof. This incident happened when the driver was southbound on the highway near Furry Creek.
Another large rockslide on Sea to Sky Highway occurred around Strachan point, with the debris blocking the right lane. Squamish RCMP thanks their partner agency Miller Cap for working tirelessly to clear the debris to get traffic flowing safely again.
