Drivers spent their Saturday afternoon in their cars, waiting for almost two hours to leave the Oakridge Mall parking lot.

“It’s taken us an hour and a half just winding our way through the parking garage trying to get out and off the property and we’re nowhere near being off,” a driver named George told News 1130.

George called security several times, to no avail. He hoped someone would direct traffic, but said nothing happened.

As it turned out, the issue was due to City of Vancouver working on 41st Avenue. Traffic was resolved around 5:30 p.m.

“It was an unfortunate scenario and we regret the significant inconvenience,” said a City of Vancouver spokesperson.

It’s a significant inconvenience to say the least.
