The Official RS News Report for Roads

Since its pretty crazy outside with lots of road closures and now the snow, I thought it would be appropriate to start a thread about these inside tips so we can get to where we need safely and relatively on time.

As of 1PM today, Fraser going southbound and northbound is stuck due to a tree falling down onto Fraser (from the cemetery side). This is right between 41st and 40th so try to take an alternate route.


*edit: also, if you don't have snow tires on, please stay off the road. I've passed by too many cars stuck going up slight hills.

As of ~3PM South bound granville -> arthur laing bridge. avoid if lowered car.

Huge ass flood.

Edit: To clarify, it's right at the merge where you merge onto Arthur Laing to enter Richmond.

Any area around highway 1 entrance/exits are massively backed up.

Seriously, if you can, stay where you are and chill for about 4 hours.

It's retarded out there.

Yeah somewhere around that, if you're continuing along Marine you're safe, but if you're heading up onto the bridge you're fucked. My friend's stock height Mazda 3 Sport barely made it.

Not sure if its drained or whatever by now or still there.
