THE Pattullo Bridge will be closed to traffic in both directions during the Easter long weekend to allow for work being conducted by the Government of British Columbia, as part of the Pattullo Bridge Replacement Project. 

The closure is necessary to complete work including soil densification activities, paving, and relocation of the seismic warning system. The warning system will be temporarily disconnected during this time and must be completed with no traffic on the bridge, to ensure the safety of motorists.

TransLink will also be conducting bridge work during this period, including speed sign relocation, line painting, concrete patching, and inspections requiring rope access onto the overhead bridge truss.

To ensure this work is conducted safely, a full Pattullo Bridge closure will be in place from Thursday, April 6 at 10 p.m. until Tuesday, April 11 at 5 a.m. The bridge will remain open to pedestrians, cyclists, and first responders at all times. 

Dates of closure Time Direction closed
Thursday, April 6 – Tuesday, April 11 10 p.m. (April 6) – 5 a.m. (April 11) Pattullo Bridge full closure (both directions)

 Pattullo Bridge users are encouraged to take the Port Mann or Alex Fraser bridges as alternatives. N19 NightBus trips affected by the closure 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.
