TransLink is asking customers to build in extra time for their commute.

Elsewhere, Highway 99 remains closed Thursday morning north of Pemberton due to another mudslide.

On the Coquihalla Highway, crews continue to work on protecting the Othello Bridge from further damage caused by flooding.

On Highway 1, the priority remains a stretch between Abbotsford and Chilliwack where a tiger dam is expected to stay in place.

“For now, it’s working, so that means that Highway 1 will be useable that much more quickly because those steps were taken,” Transportation Minister Rob Fleming said Wednesday.
