VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) –┬áIf you’re planning on traveling around Vancouver today, expect some delays going north or across the Granville Bridge, as well as on the Sea-to-Sky.

The Sea-to-Sky highway between West Vancouver and Whistler will be very slow today as the Gran Fondo is taking place. Thousands of cyclists are expected to take on the windy path north and traffic will be delayed for up to three hours as riders start at Lions Gate Bridge, go up Taylor Way and along the Upper Levels Highway and onto Highway 99 to finish in Whistler.

For more information about the race and the full impact to traffic, visit the Gran Fond website.

If you are heading north into downtown Vancouver, Granville Street Bridge will be closed north-bound until 8:00 p.m. tonight for filming, and drivers are instructed to use alternate routes across Cambie Street Bridge or Burrard Bridge.
