Highway 99 culvert collapse snarls traffic in Richmond
Ministry of transportation working to fix culvert near Bridgeport exit
The collapse of a culvert has closed one lane of Highway 99 in Richmond, B.C., causing traffic back up as crews attempt to fix it.
The culvert collapsed near to the Bridgeport exit, creating a large hole in the pavement on the side of the highway.
A team with the Ministry of Transportation has been here for several hours now trying to figure out what went wrong, examining the road from all angles to get a sense of how it seemingly caved in.
One lane of the northbound highway has been closed, although there are no diversions in place.
