A tiny bump has been causing traffic jams on the Lions Gate Bridge since last week.
Little bump on the Lions Gate Bridge causes traffic jam
A 1.75 inch metal bump on the south end of the Lions Gate Bridge has been identified as the reason for the slow traffic.
The bump creates an unsettling sound hence, the need for motorists to slow down to avoid this sound.
“I thought that my trunk flew open,” one driver told CTV News after crossing the bridge. “We have a lot of stuff because we’re travelling and I thought that something would have fallen out.”
Thanks to the 1.75 inch metal bump on the south end of the Lions Gate Bridge, Translink has started diverting buses 240 and 246 during peak periods to help commuters travelling between the bridge and the SeaBus.
"We don't want people to be unnecessarily delayed," said TransLink spokesperson Anne Drennan.
British Columbia’s Ministry of Transportation has acknowledged the issues the bump is causing, and have now announced that it is making changes to the small metal bump.
A spokesperson confirmed this on Wednesday saying that the government intends to widen the bump and place more rubber on it in hopes of creating a smoother driving experience.
British Columbia's ctvnews reports that the work is expected to be completed by Friday morning.
