The northbound lanes of the Trans Canada Highway (HWY 1) have opened up again from Carey Road to Tillicum Road following an incident in the area early this morning.

Traffic was snarled in the morning, backing traffic up to the intersection of Douglas Street and Saanich Road.

The section of the Galloping Goose Trail in that area was also closed.

The southbound lanes of the highway were closed briefly after the incident occurred just before 3 a.m. but was reopen while Saanich Police continued their investigation around the area and northbound traffic was redirected.

Saanich Police told Victoria Buzz they are investigating a crime scene but did not release any more information on the incident.

More to come.
