Traffic is moving again in both directions after an overnight multi-vehicle crash shut down a section of Highway 91 that runs through Richmond.
According to DriveBC westbound and eastbound lanes were both cleared just after 9:30 a.m.
One of the vehicles reportedly drove into part of a concrete barrier in the middle of the highway around 2:30 a.m.
RCMP shut down the highway between No. 6 Road and No. 7 Road shortly after the crash to investigate the accident.
Drivers can detour using the Queensborough or Alex Fraser Bridges.
DriveBC said it estimates the highway will reopen between 8:00 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. Saturday.
