The Pattullo Bridge is a key connection between the communities of Surrey and New Westminster.
The new four-lane Pattullo Bridge will provide important improvements for everyone using the bridge, including people who are driving, cycling or walking, as well as communities on either side of the bridge, including:
- A safer crossing for all bridge users with modern, wider lanes, separated by a centre median barrier
- Dedicated walking and cycling lanes, separated from traffic by a barrier on both sides of the bridge
- Better connections to, from and near the bridge
A preferred proponent team has been selected for the project. Fraser Crossing Partners will now enter into discussions to finalize an agreement with the Province of B.C. to design and build the new four-lane bridge that will replace the existing Pattullo Bridge.
The new bridge is scheduled to open in 2023. Once the new bridge is open, the existing bridge will be removed. Pre-construction work will start in the coming months.
The Project budget is $1.377 billion and will be delivered, funded and owned by the Province of B.C. The Project will be delivered under the Province’s Community Benefits Agreement (CBA). BC Infrastructure Benefits is responsible for implementing the CBA for the project and will be the employer for workers on the project.
