Only a week after a fire took out an entire section of this major commuter artery, the Pattullo Bridge will re-open in time for the morning rush hour tomorrow.
The Pattullo Bridge will open at 6am, just in time for the Monday morning commute. TransLink says it was a stroke of luck to get it fixed way ahead of schedule.
Crews are putting the final touches on the bridge and are re-paving a significant portion of bridge deck. TransLink CEO Tom Prendergast says it wouldn’t have opened early had it not been for materials from the Canada Line. [News1130]
I’m glad the route will again be open, however I just hope these expedited repairs hold up.
