MAY 18 UPDATE: The Pattullo Bridge is open northbound into New Westminster on May 18 as the work completed early.

The Pattullo Bridge is closed to northbound traffic travelling into New Westminster for two nights on May 17 and 18, from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m., for work on the Pattullo Bridge Replacement Project.

  • It will remain open to pedestrians, cyclists, and first responders at all times.
  • Pattullo Bridge users travelling into New Westminster are encouraged to take the Port Mann or Alex Fraser bridges as alternatives.
  • Northbound N19 NightBus trips will be rerouted over the Alex Fraser and Queensborough bridges between Scott Road and New Westminster stations.
  • Southbound N19 trips into Surrey will remain unaffected.

This closure is to ensure the safety of workers and bridge users while crews lift steel girders between foundations of the new bridge, near the existing bridge in Surrey.

Signage will indicate all traffic pattern changes and traffic control personnel will be on-site. Affected customers should plan for up to 30 minutes of additional travel time.

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