The Lions Gate Bridge is now open, after a multi-vehicle incident closed the bridge in both directions – in all three lanes – on Tuesday morning.

The collision occurred near the north end of the bridge around 11 a.m. and closed all three lanes in both directions, reports VanCity Buzz. It was then reported open just after Noon.

CTV Vancouver has reported that two people were taken to Lions Gate Hospital in North Vancouver, but with non-life-threatening injuries.

With the bridge closed, drivers and commuters were being asked to use the Iron Workers Memorial Second Narrows Bridge or the SeaBus instead.

Delays and congestion are still expected.
