Mission Bridge traffic to shut down for 1 hour tonight in both directions

Aug. 3 inspection has led to 3 days straight of ‘emergency repairs’

The Mission Bridge will be closed to all traffic tonight (Aug. 5) from 9 p.m. to 10 p.m., according to the Mission Fire Rescue Service.

A Ministry of Transportation inspection on Aug. 3 has led to three straight days of emergency repairs, which are to conclude on Aug. 6, according to Emil Anderson Maintenance.

The repairs have shut down one lane in both directions since the inspection.

Travellers have been advised to plan ahead and consider alternate routes during the repair work, but southbound traffic jams have frequently built up in the mornings, and northbound jams have followed after working hours.

The Record has reached out to the Ministry of Transportation to ask about the results of the inspection, which led to immediate repair work.
