Regular readers of the blog and those just generally interested in the infrastructure of the region will know the Pattullo Bridge has reached the end its life cycle and that next steps need to be taken.
Following our consultation we did last year, the Pattullo Bridge review consultation starts today and runs until June 28, 2013.
In short, TransLink, the City of New Westminster and the City of Surrey are working together to review and evaluate alternatives to rehabilitate or replace the Pattullo Bridge and to determine a preferred alternative that meets the needs of communities connected by the bridge, as well as the broader region served by the bridge.
For complete details you’ll want to head over to the Pattullo Bridge Review website. There are a few ways to participate in the process:
