Toppled power pole caused Steveston Highway road closure

Steveston Highway was cordoned off by police for several hours late Saturday afternoon and well into the evening after a power pole toppled.

Richmond RCMP Const. Tammy-Lyn Walker said safety concerns prompted police to close down the stretch of Steveston Highway between No. 2 Road and Gilbert.

The power pole toppled at a home that was being demolished, she said.

Walker said the road was re-opened after the hazard was dealt with.
