A bit of history

In their June 2014 “Regional Transportation Investments – a Vision for Metro Vancouver”, the Mayors’ Council on Regional Transportation identified that the Pattullo Bridge replacement will be a

“new, four-lane bridge, primarily funded by user pricing. The replacement bridge will be designed in a manner so as not to foreclose the consideration to six lanes, subject to all-party agreement and Mayors’ Council approval.”

TransLink has initiated the planning and project development for the replacement bridge, including beginning environmental studies and seeking public input on community connections.

While funding for a new bridge is not yet in place, TransLink is working with senior government partners and the Mayors’ Council to secure the necessary funding for this critical project.
