By Friday afternoon, FortisBC said the issues had been resolved and traffic was now moving in both directions. 

“The section was unexpectedly closed this week after a ground movement near the Lillian Street intersection,” the company said in a statement. “The section was already closed to traffic travelling west, with the exception of local access, emergency services and buses. We want to apologize to the community for the inconvenience this temporary detour caused.”
