A tractor trailer transporting part of the Evergreen Line flipped over on Hwy 91 Wednesday afternoon.

RCMP say the load on the truck shifted and caused the tractor trailer to flip on its side just after 12:30 p.m.

The vehicle was on the off-ramp of Highway 91 just before getting onto Highway 91 A when the incident occurred.

A large crane is en-route to clear the scene and put the tractor trailer up right.

The off ramp is expected to be closed until 7 p.m. Wednesday. Traffic is being diverted to Annacis Island.
