VIDEO: Semi hits rail overpass on Hwy. 1 through Langley

No injuries reported

A semi truck pulling a trailer collided with the Highway 1 rail overpass in the westbound lanes near 232nd Street through Langley on Tuesday morning, Oct. 24, around 9 a.m.

The trailer suffered significant damage and its cargo was offloaded. Commercial Vehicle Safety and Enforcement investigators were at the scene.

No injuries were reported.

There didn’t appear to be any major damage to the overpass and traffic was reopened later in the morning.

Hwy. 1 through Aldergrove has more crashes than any other location in the province, according to ICBC stats showing there were 240 crashes in and around the 264th Street interchange on the Trans Canada Highway, last year. That is a rate of just under two crashes every three days.

A highway widening project from 216th Street to 264th Street was announced in 2019, to include upgrades to both 264th and the 232nd Street interchanges. The Glover Road overpass is also currently being replaced with a newer, higher overpass.

Construction on the widening began in 2021 and is expected to finish around 2025.
