After a transformer fire on the Queensborough Bridge closed the bridge and knocked out power in the Queensborough neighbourhood yesterday morning, the lights finally came back on early Thursday morning.

And while residents knew they were in for a wait, they likely didn’t expect the wait would be more than 24 hours as it turned out to be.

Originally, the City of New Westminster estimated the outage would last 8 to 10 hours.

It turned out to be a little longer than that, and it wasn’t until the early morning hours on Thursday that power was restored.

It also appears that the bridge is once again at full capacity.
