Fortunately, Aubrey said, the vehicle and logs that spilled filled one lane and shoulder, leaving one lane open for northbound traffic.

Motorists heading over the Malahat can expect delays. Traffic was down to a single lane with Emcon Services assessing the scene and brief road closures expected to remove the logs and the truck itself.
