UPDATE: Queensborough Bridge to be opened this afternoon

Power in the area will be out for an indeterminate time

The Queensborough Bridge now has both lanes open northbound, and one southbound, following an early morning electrical fire.

The Queensborough Bridge was shut down hours on Wednesday, following the fire which broke out around 4 a.m.

New Westminster Mayor Jonathan Cote confirmed that power is expected to be restored to the area by midnight.

New Westminster is the only municipality in Metro Vancouver where the electricity is not run by BC Hydro.
