Update: All lanes on the Lions Gate Bridge are now open; expect congestion and delays.

Crossing the Lions Gate requires patience on a good day, but on Sunday, April 3, it might be better to avoid it altogether.

According to a tweet from Drive BC, the bridge was closed to traffic in both directions due to a police incident.

Drive BC cautioned drivers to consider an alternate route and expect major delays.

Minutes later, Drive BC issued updates that the Southbound lane, and then the Northbound lane was open again while the southbound lane remained closed.

Then, the flow of traffic looked to be slightly improved.

By 9:43 am, the incident had been cleared.

Drive BC said on Twitter that all lanes were open, but there will be delays due to congestion.

Anyone driving the Lions Gate knows to bring their patience with them, but better bring extra if you’re headed to or from the North Shore today.
