Travel BC: Google Maps Falsely Shows Kokihara Closure

Published

DriveBC advises people traveling between Hope and Merit in Kokihara four times a month that the highway is open. Google Maps says the highway is closed.

“Google Maps is a great resource, but it’s causing some confusion!” Said Sunday’s tweet from an account that provides drivers with the latest information from the British Columbia Department of Transportation.

This was the latest in a series of similar warnings from the Ministry on false information provided by popular navigation platforms.

“We apologize for the ongoing error on Google Maps that indicates that the roads and highways that are actually open are closed,” said a post posted on May 29. increase.

On June 10th, in a similar tweet, the information provided by Google was described as “apparently incorrect and certainly invalid.” Three days later, the agency posted that the company was “informed that it was useless about the illiterateness of their application regarding # BCHwy5.”

The state reminds drivers that its website provides the most accurate and up-to-date information on road conditions.

Inland people were warned to anticipate a delay during the summer as the state continues to repair the damage caused by the catastrophic floods last year while the route was open.

Highway 5 was closed for almost two months and resumed normal traffic in January. However, by that time only temporary repairs had been completed.

Due to permanent repair work underway, speed limits will continue to decline and lane closures will continue on some sections.

Those who need to travel along the route are advised to check online for real-time updates on how construction is affecting traffic before they depart.
