VANCOUVER – Travellers can expect delays during the afternoon peak travel period at the Alex Fraser and Port Mann bridges, due to lane closures for winter maintenance activities.

Early this morning, Tuesday, Feb. 4, 2020, rope-access technicians and traffic control were mobilized to both bridges and began cable-collar drops to clear minor accumulations on the stays. Additional control operations may be required throughout the rest of the day.

Ministry staff continue to patrol and closely monitor the weather and highway/bridge conditions. The ministry’s maintenance contractors have crews on shift 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Drivers are reminded to use caution and ensure their vehicle has winter tires for better traction in the snow. Travellers should be prepared to adjust their plans and expect delays, and check the latest travel information:
