Material spill slows traffic on Highway 1 near Victoria

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.
