DriveBC says the Lions Gate Bridge has reopened after being closed in both directions at around 4:15 p.m. Sunday due to a police incident. 

TransLink was forced to change bus routes during the closure, which lasted more than one hour.

Highway cameras showed traffic lined up along Georgia Street in Vancouver due to the closure.

DriveBC said to expect delays as congested traffic cleared.
