The B.C. government is moving forward with the construction of a $1.377-billion bridge to replace the Pattullo Bridge.
The new four-lane crossing will provide improvements for everyone using the bridge, including people who are driving, cycling or walking, as well as communities on either side of the bridge in New Westminster and Surrey.
The Pattullo Bridge replacement project will be delivered solely by the Province. The project includes a new Pattullo Bridge that will be located upstream of the existing one, network connections in Surrey and New Westminster, and the removal of the existing bridge. The new Pattullo Bridge will be owned, operated and maintained by the B.C. government.
- The new bridge will be a four-lane bridge with road network improvements in Surrey and New Westminster.
- The bridge will have wider lanes built to today’s standard, which will allow traffic — particularly commercial truck traffic — to flow more safely and efficiently.
- The bridge deck will be designed to accommodate pedestrian and cyclist facilities. Pedestrian and cycling lanes will be separated from vehicle traffic on both sides of the bridge.
- The approved budget is $1.377 billion. This represents the full cost to complete the project, including procurement, project management, construction, removal of the existing bridge and interest during construction.
- The Province will be using a design-build-finance (DBF) model to build the Pattullo Bridge replacement.
- The ministry is on track to replace this structure in 2023. Once the new bridge is complete, the old bridge will be removed.
