Two morning sailings from Langdale to Horseshoe Bay on Saturday, Sept. 7 will be affected by detours that will be in place for the RBC GranFondo Whistler cycling event from downtown Vancouver to Whistler.
For motorists travelling on the 6:20 a.m. and 8:40 a.m. sailings from Langdale, the eastbound lanes of the Upper Levels Highway will be closed to traffic from Horseshoe Bay to Taylor Way. Between 5:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m., eastbound motorists will be redirected through West Vancouver along Marine Drive.
Trucks disembarking from these sailings that are more than 20 metres in length and 40,000 kg GVW heading east will be held on Highway 1 at Exit 0 until 9:30 a.m.
“Drivers of these commercial vehicles may wish to consider taking an alternate sailing,” BC Ferries said in a release.
