Lost barge forces closure of Burrard Street Bridge for fear of collision – .


The stray barge that floated around English Bay and Sunset Beach has now forced the Burrard Street Bridge to close.
Vancouver city officials and Vancouver police suggest the closure was due to the risk of the barge crashing into the bridge.

VPD and the City of Vancouver took to social media to share the news.

While the barge is still stranded along English Bay, authorities are closing the Burrard Bridge as a precaution.

Vancouver Police are advising commuters to use an alternate route.

The city of Vancouver also said in a tweet that there would be an attempt to remove the barge at high tide on Tuesday afternoon. They are currently working on security measures with the Port of Vancouver and the Canadian Coast Guard.

More soon…
