Traffic Advisory: Hwy 17 W/B DPD Dealing with Semi-Truck Compromised Load
|Release Date/Time:||June 8, 2017 10:47am|
|Incident Date/Time:||June 08, 2017|
|Location:||8300 blk Hwy 17 Westbound|
At approximately 09:00 a.m. this morning Delta Police responded to the westbound lanes of the 8300 blk of Highway 17 regarding a report of a broken down semi-truck with its load compromised.
As a result of the condition and compromised load of the semi-truck, heavy duty equipment is required to unload and right the semi before it can be towed.
Because specialized equipment is required it is anticipated that westbound Highway 17 will be single lane traffic for several hours.
Delta Police are advising the motoring public to use an alternate route. Although there is single lane traffic getting through it is extremely congested from Tannery Road through to Nordel Way on the highway. It is best to avoid the area altogether.
Delta Police will advise when the area is clear and fully open.
