A transport truck driver’s error on Tuesday morning ended up snarling traffic on the Robson bridge.
Emergency responders on the scene say the truck was turning onto the bridge when it clipped two large landscaping rocks, dragging them onto the bridge deck.
The larger of the two rocks was pulled about 50 metres down the road before coming loose in the middle of the bridge deck.
Police and emergency crews were called to control traffic and figure out how to remove the obstacle from the busy bridge.
Complicating matters, the transport truck damaged a brake line during the incident and was forced to come to a stop at the north end of the bridge, which spans the Columbia River.
There is no word on any injuries.
Traffic was backed up and reduced to single-lane alternating while crews worked to put the rocks back where they belong.
