VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – The province says there’s no need for drivers to slow down when going over a metal bump left by construction crews on the Lions Gate Bridge.
The Ministry of Transportation says the plates are covering up ongoing joint replacement for the bridge deck and will be removed when work is done in about four weeks.
It says the bump is safe to drive over at full speed.
Yesterday, there were long backups in both directions on the bridge, as people slowed down when approaching the bump. Many callers to NEWS 1130 feel if drivers do not slow down, the bump could cause damage to cars.
The metal plates will be there for the next four weeks or so.
