A large section of River Road on the Langley-Abbotsford border gave way after a culvert failure on Thursday afternoon. According to reports, the large section of road crumbled immediately after a vehicle crossed over it and just as a motorcyclist was approaching. No one was injured. The road is expected to remain closed between 272 St. and Lefeuvre Road for an extended period of time.
