A crash on the Trans-Canada Highway in Langford impacted traffic on the Malahat Tuesday afternoon.
According to Emcon Services Inc., the highway contractor, traffic was affected in both directions between West Shore Parkway and Goldstream Provincial Park. A detour was in place for passenger vehicles only at Finlayson Arm Road for northbound traffic.
