You may experience heavier traffic than normal if you’re headed from Victoria out to the West Shore this afternoon.
A material spill on Highway 1 between the Helmken overpass and the Colwood exit has closed one lane of northbound traffic.
The spill appears to be liquid in nature and first responders have since laid down a dry mix to soak up the moisture.
Fire crews were on scene to help clean up, and traffic should continue flowing normally once congestion clears up.
