Commuters are being asked to take it easy, while the Transportation Ministry works to fix bumps in the virtually new South Fraser Perimeter Road.
It says staff are monitoring the situation and looking for a long-term solution.
“This is an interim measure – as a more robust plan to repair the pavement on Highway 17 in this area is being developed.”
Motorists have been noticing the problem since early fall, which persists despite multiple efforts by the ministry to repave the area.
The road was completed in December 2013 for $658 million.
Design options are currently being developed. The Ministry says soil settlement under roads is not unusual when large road building projects are performed.
