B.C.’s Pattullo Bridge replacement to be completed in fall 2025 – Truck News

The construction of the new bridge’s main tower in the Pattullo Bridge Replacement Project has been completed. It will replace the existing bridge crossing the Fraser River, and connect Surrey and New Westminster in Metro Vancouver, B.C.

Once completed, it is expected to provide a safer commute and a more efficient connection for goods movement between Canada and the U.S., according to the B.C. Transportation Investment Corporation, that is delivering and overseeing this $1.377 billion project. The bridge will feature modern, wider lanes separated by a center median barrier, as well as dedicated walking and cycling lanes.

The project started in February 2020. Since then, it has faced significant supply chain and inflation-related challenges, and the bridge tower construction took longer than expected. As a result, the new bridge is expected to open in fall 2025. Once the replacement bridge is open to traffic, the existing one will be removed.

Until then, the current Pattullo Bridge remains in use.
