The only road into Telegraph Creek and Glenora remains closed due to a rock-and-mudslide that happened yesterday -- and there's no estimate on when it might be reopened.

The Transportation Ministry says the slide was reported at around 9 o'clock yesterday morning on Highway 51 between Glenora Road and the Tahltan River Bridge, about 19 kilometres east of Telegraph Creek.

Geotechnical engineers are currently assessing the situation.

There are no reports of any injuries.
