Hydro pole down on Grafton Road

Traffic in both directions is being diverted during cleanup

A hydro pole went down along Grafton Road on Thursday afternoon, forcing delays to both eastbound and westbound traffic.

The pole collapsed outside the Building Centre, between Harding Road and Gardner Lane. Flagging crews are on scene and redirecting all vehicles through the Building Centre parking lot, as the stretch of road with the downed pole is fully closed off in both directions.

Workers at the scene said they hoped the pole and wires will be removed from the road by BC Hydro later today. Until then anyone travelling this stretch of Grafton Road is advised to allow for some extra time to complete their trip.
