COQUITLAM – The two finishing touches on the new Port Mann Bridge – a 1964 commemorative plaque from the original bridge and a new plaque to mark the opening of the new crossing – were unveiled today in a ceremony on the old bridge.
Both plaques will be mounted along the brand new Port Mann Bridge pedestrian and cycling path once the bridge is completed to its full 10-lane width.
The new plaque reads: “Dedicated to the thousands of builders, designers and visionaries responsible for the Port Mann / Highway 1 Project – the largest transportation infrastructure project in British Columbia’s history; December 2012”.
The original plaque was recovered from the first Port Mann Bridge where it was installed at the approach to the crossing. Crews are working to dismantle the original span so the new bridge can be completed to its final 10-lane width and the multi-user path for pedestrians and cyclists can be connected from Coquitlam to Surrey.
