Surrey council-in-committee heard an update on Feb. 13 from Wendy Itagawa, the executive project director.
The $1.377 billion project for Pattullo Bridge replacement is set to be opened for traffic in 2024, with the existing bridge remaining in use until traffic is diverted to it.
Surrey council-in-committee heard an update on Feb. 13 from Wendy Itagawa, the executive project director.
The new toll-free bridge – with four lanes expandable to six – will be located upstream and northeast of the 86-year-old bridge which was opened in 1937.
“Of note, and in light of the snow we experienced in December, the cables on the new bridge will not cross over any of the travelling lanes, which will help mitigate the risk of snow and ice potentially falling on the travelling lanes,” Itagawa told council. “In addition, there will be a snow and ice removal system, from day one, on the new bridge that’s similar to the system on Port Mann whereby it’s deployed remotely.”
This year will see realignment of Highway 17, Old Yale Road overpass construction, off-ramp construction, bridge deck girder installation, early work for bridge demolition, and 112 Avenue and King George Boulevard roadworks and multi-use path construction.
