Travellers driving between the North Shore and areas south of Burrard Inlet in Metro Vancouver are advised to expect significantly longer travel times this evening.

An unspecified police incident on the Lions Gate Bridge has closed the route in both directions.

The incident, which began shortly after 5:30 pm, is ongoing and there is no estimated reopening time for the bridge.

Drivers are being asked to detour to the Second Narrows Ironworkers Memorial Bridge. Expect additional traffic volumes on this alternative crossing as a result.
