The Pattullo Bridge will only be open to single-direction traffic overnight on Monday and Tuesday, with lane closures taking effect from 10 p.m. until 5 a.m. the following day.
These closures are necessary to ensure the safety of workers and those travelling over the bridge. The bridge will remain open to pedestrians, cyclists, and first responders in both directions at all times.
The lane closures are required for the safe inspection of the underside of the deck, using a large truck that takes up two lanes of traffic. This work is part of an annual structural inspection of the Pattullo Bridge.
Pattullo Bridge users are encouraged to take the Port Mann or Alex Fraser bridges as alternatives. N19 NightBus trips affected by the lane closures will be rerouted over the Alex Fraser and Queensborough bridges between New Westminster and Scott Road stations. Customers should plan for up to 30 minutes of additional travel time.
The inspection is part of our ongoing efforts to ensure the Pattullo Bridge remains in a state of good repair until its replacement is completed in 2024.
