A multi-vehicle crash on Golden Ears Bridge has brought traffic to a standstill in Maple Ridge on Wednesday morning.

According to BC Emergency Health Services, multiple vehicles were involved in a collision on the bridge just before 6:45 a.m. Emergency crews responded and most of the bridge was shut down for a while, but there was no serious injuries and none of the individuals involved were transported to hospital.

As a result of the lane closures, major delays continue to happen along Lougheed Highway and other parts of Maple Ridge and Mission, with southbound traffic particularly bad.

Traffic has now fully opened up on the bridge, but commuters should still expect delays to occur for a while.

Another pair of collisions on the Mission Bridge also caused issues around the same time this morning, making most of east Maple Ridge a traffic nightmare, although congestion in the area has now begun to clear.
