ON WEDNESDAY, it was an overturned lumber truck.
The incident happened at almost the worst possible location – where Battle Street, Columbia Street, Valleyview Drive and the Yellowhead Highway all come together.
Thursday, there was a gas line struck on West Victoria. The response to the incident led to West Victoria being shut down in both directions.
Even though it’s the site of a big construction project, it is still relied upon as a primary route to get over the Overlanders Bridge every day.
So for a second day in a row, the afternoon commute was messed up.
