Trans Mountain says the recent heavy rainfall caused a 'settlement' adjacent to the Mary Hill Bypass, forcing two lanes to close for commuter safety.

Westbound traffic is only partially getting through along a major Port Coquitlam route for a third straight day.

An apparent "sinkhole" is believed to be the reason for the continued closure on the Mary Hill Bypass between Shaughnessy Street and United Boulevard and has been brought to the attention of many groups, including one against the construction of the Trans Mountain pipeline (TMX).
