Pattullo Bridge ‘community connections’ feedback sought, starting today

Open houses, survey part of TransLink plan to replace the aging bridge

Pattullo Bridge connects Surrey and New Westminster.

SURREY — Want your say about connection options for the Pattullo Bridge?

Now’s your chance.

Starting today and ending on July 11, TransLink invites the public to provide input on community connections for the aging bridge, which connects Surrey with New Westminster.

Open houses are scheduled at a number of sites, including Surrey city hall (from 5 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, June 15) and Bridgeview Elementary (from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, June 25).

TransLink is undertaking the Pattullo Bridge Replacement Project to replace the existing span with a new, four-lane tolled bridge.

The new bridge will connect to Surrey via King George Boulevard. Scott Road will be re-aligned for a more direct connection to King George Boulevard through a new interchange, according to TransLink’s website. CLICK HERE to read more and see maps.

Input collected during this consultation period “will be considered, along with financial and technical information, in refining the community connection options for the new Pattullo Bridge,” according to a TransLink press release.

More details, along with consultation materials, including a “discussion guide” and an online survey, are posted at translink.ca/pattulloreplacement.

Until October, bridge rehabilitation work will continue, resulting in frequent closures and traffic-related delays. Deck repairs will keep the bridge operational until a replacement is complete, TransLink says.
