Pattullo Bridge Replacement

Pattullo Bridge

The Pattullo Bridge was constructed in 1938 and connects the cities of Surrey and New Westminster by carrying four lanes of traffic over the Fraser River. Plans to replace the bridge with a new six-lane structure are currently being developed. The new structure will connect both the North and South Fraser Perimeter Road networks and will accommodate future road and river traffic. In the absence of senior government or alternative funding, it will be funded by tolls.

Scope of Services:

  • Currently fulfilling the role of project manager for the planning, scoping, development, and procurement phases of the project,
  • Assisting with community liaison,
  • Coordinating feasibility studies of options for the replacement of the bridge and its possible combination with a railway bridge,
  • Providing an overview of hydraulic conditions, interfaces with road and rail infrastructure on both sides of the river, and location alternatives,
  • Investigating the possible procurement options and implications of tolling.
