DriveBC is warning motorists that Kootenay Pass on Highway 3 is expected to be closed until 6 p.m. on Wednesday.

The closure is because of a high avalanche hazard in the 18 kilometres between West Avalanche Gate and East Avalanche Gate.

Drivers can take a detour from Nelson to Creston, taking the Highway 3A ferry.
