VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – If you’re looking forward to counterflow at the Alex Fraser Bridge, you don’t have to wait much longer. The B.C. government says it’s on track to complete the project before the end of the year.

Once counterflow is good to go, it will be possible to have four lanes northbound in the morning, and four lanes southbound in the afternoon. Right now, it’s four lanes south and three lanes north.

The project is behind schedule, as it was initially set to be done by the start of September.
