Multiple traffic accidents have virtually shut down Highway 1 leaving and entering North Vancouver via the Ironworkers Memorial Bridge.
The traffic gridlock began shortly before 2 p.m. with a collision heading northbound on the Ironworkers Bridge. While that accident was cleared by 2:15 p.m., another accident roughly halfway down the cut heading eastbound occurred just 45 minutes later, backing up traffic leaving the North Shore.

Then, just after 3 p.m., a vehicle stalled going southbound at the north end of the Ironworkers Bridge, further compounding traffic woes.
The stall was cleared at around 3:30, but minutes after, an accident involving a motorcycle occurred going westbound on Highway 1 just past the Fern St. overpass. That accident shut down all westbound traffic coming off the Ironworkers Bridge onto the North Shore.
Traffic heading into North Vancouver is now backed up on Highway 1 almost to East 1st Ave. in Vancouver, while highway traffic heading off the North Shore is backed up past Capilano Rd.
