Heavy congestion on the roads leading to Tsawwassen Mills continues on the fifth consecutive day of the new mall’s opening.

At this time, traffic is moving very slowly on Highway 17 approximately two kilometres before 52nd Street, where the mall is located.

Traffic levels are slightly lighter than what was experienced on Saturday, on what could have been the mall’s busiest opening weekend day.

More traffic aids and flaggers have been strategically deployed across the 6,000-car parking lot after numerous shoppers reported being trapped in their cars in the parking lot for hours yesterday afternoon. Some people were stuck in the parking lot for as long as four hours.

Traffic levels to and from BC Ferries’ Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal, just west of the mall, are currently relatively light, but this is expected to increase significantly tomorrow when local residents return from their Thanksgiving long weekend travels.

BC Ferries has advised drivers and those traveling by public transit bus to provide themselves with extra travel time due to the congestion in the area before the mall.

A total of 56 extra sailings have been scheduled for the Tsawwassen to Swartz Bay route over the long weekend. The bulk of the extra sailings are scheduled for Monday.
