You may have noticed a lot of work taking place on the Knight Street Bridge. As part of TransLink’s Maintenance and Upgrade Program, we’re rehabilitating the bridge through December 2023.

More than 100,000 vehicles cross the Knight Street Bridge in an average day. At 49 years old, maintenance is critical to ensuring the safety and reliability of the crossing for all bridge users.

This project includes deck bearing replacement, deck resurfacing, and cycling/pedestrian railing replacement. Work will take place mostly overnight and require some single-lane traffic closures in both directions.

Knight Street Bridge Rehabilitation Project Overview

  • Bearing replacement
    • Replacing original bridge bearings with new bearings to ensure the continued integrity of the structure.
  • Pavement rehabilitation
    • Milling and repaving the top layer of the concrete deck with polyester polymer concrete (PPC) overlay to prevent future corrosion.
  • Railing replacement
    • Replacing the railing separating vehicle lanes from the sidewalk to provide more protective separation between vehicles, cyclists, and pedestrians.

Construction Information

Bearing replacement work is expected to be completed by late summer 2023.

  • This work will not impact traffic lanes or sidewalks; digital signs will indicate reduced speed for the safety of work crews.
  • Work will take place primarily during the day; noise should not impact residential areas.

Pavement rehabilitation work is expected to be completed by late fall 2023 and will require:

  • Single-lane closures in both directions (weather permitting)
    • Weekdays from 9:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m.
    • Weekends and holidays from 9:00 p.m. to 9:00 a.m.
  • Width restriction of 3.8 metres for commercial vehicles

Railing replacement is expected to take place through fall 2023 and may require sidewalk closures.

  • Cyclists and pedestrians will be detoured to the opposite side of the bridge throughout construction.

We thank bridge users for their patience as we work to ensure this vital crossing remains safe and reliable for years to come.
