VANCOUVER - Traffic has dropped substantially on the Port Mann bridge since tolls were introduced, Transportation Minister Todd Stone announced Friday.
There are 5,000 to 6,000 fewer cars a day on the bridge, compared to traffic prior to the toll being introduced a year ago.
"There is no question that the Port Mann bridge, the overall traffic volumes are down somewhat year over year," Stone said.
But the drop is expected to be temporary, he said.
