Closure necessary for the Pattullo Bridge Replacement Project

The Pattullo Bridge is closed to traffic in both directions overnight on Thursday, August 3 to allow for work by the Government of British Columbia as part of the Pattullo Bridge Replacement Project.

Crews are removing the temporary pedestrian bridge next to the Bridge Connector in New Westminster and a guide sign over King George Boulevard, near the bridge approach in Surrey.

To ensure this work is completed safely, the Pattullo Bridge is fully closed from Thursday, August 3 at 10:00 p.m. to Friday, August 4 at 5:00 a.m. The bridge will remain open to pedestrians and cyclists at all times.

Signage will indicate all traffic pattern changes and traffic control personnel will be on-site to direct traffic, pedestrians, and cyclists.

Pattullo Bridge users are encouraged to take the Port Mann or Alex Fraser bridges as alternatives. N19 NightBus and route 103 trips affected by the lane closures will be rerouted over the Alex Fraser and Queensborough bridges between New Westminster and Scott Road stations. Customers should plan for up to 30 minutes of additional travel time.

We thank bridge users and neighbours for their patience during this work. When completed, the new bridge will provide important improvements – including wider lanes separated by a median barrier and separate walking and cycling lanes.

Customers are encouraged to check Trip Planner for updates on impacted bus routes. Visit for more information.
