Pattullo Bridge upcoming Thursday night closure

Pattullo2

Definitely not a shot taken from the SkyTrain.

As part of the ongoing rehabilitation project, the Pattullo Bridge will be closed to vehicle traffic (the sidewalk will remain open for cyclists and pedestrians) overnight starting from 8 p.m. on Thursday, May 12 to 5 a.m. on Friday, May 13, weather dependent.

We encourage drivers to plan alternate routes to cross the Fraser River during this overnight closure. Transit customers planning on crossing the Fraser River should plan on longer travel times on the N19 NightBus which will re-route via the Alex Fraser and Queensborough bridges.

Drivers are reminded that when the bridge is open, the speed limit is 30 km/h. This ensures the safety of workers and all users of the bridge.

The Pattullo Bridge is one of the oldest bridges in the region. Comprehensive deck rehabilitation work is needed to maintain road safety and bridge functionality. TransLink thanks everyone for their patience while we do this important work.

    This picture appears to be quite old. Where did you find it?

    Hi Dennis!
    This photo is from the TransLink archives and was taken during the Port Mann construction, so around 2011/2012! Hope you enjoy it!
