Pattullo Bridge closed this weekend

The Port Mann and Alex Fraser Bridges could be a little busier than usual this weekend.

That’s because the Pattullo Bridge will be closed to allow crews to do some work on the span.

The Pattullo will close at 9 o’clock tonight. It won’t re-open until early Monday morning.

This is the second of three weekend closures to allow for repair work on the aging span, and TransLink‘s Derek Zabel says the work has gone well so far.

“You can’t ask for any better weather than we’ve had so far; that makes for really good conditions when you’re doing this kind of maintenance work,” he says.

Zabel also says surrounding bridges like the Queensborough, Alex Fraser, and Port Mann saw a lot more traffic during the last closure, that’s something to keep in mind as you’re out and about this weekend.

The bridge will also be closed on August 24th and 25th.
