Surrey/New Westminster – We knew this was coming. We have had advance warning. The rolling summer closures to refurbish the 70+ year old Pattullo Bridge start this weekend.
The bridge will close from the evening on April 29 (8 p.m.) to the morning of May 2 (5 a.m.) to allow crews to set up for construction work. The bridge will also close from the evening of Sept. 30 (8 p.m.) to the morning of Oct. 3 (5 a.m.) for crews to remove equipment.
From May 2 to Sept. 30, the bridge will remain open with one lane in each direction.
There will be truck access.
The bridge will be closed to all traffic two nights a week and one weekend a month.
Pedestrians and cyclists will still be able to use the bridge, even during evening and weekend closures.
Minor vehicle incidents on the bridge will cause significant delays and potentially a full bridge closure.
