On June 14th you could be one of the first people to cross the Golden Ears Bridge on foot with the Golden Ears Bridge Run. 300 people are invited to enter this 7km fun run (sorry, no walkers) and you can register online through the Running Room.
The Golden Ears Bridge Run kicks off at 8:30am from the Maple Meadows West Coast Express train station parking lot and afterward there will be a public car-free celebration from 11:00am until 4:00pm. Highlights will include performance stages, information about key features of the bridge & road networks, an official completion ceremony and other activities for the entire family. The celebrations will all take place mid-span on the new bridge.
This latest crossing over the Fraser River links up Surrey/Langley and Pitt Meadows/Maple Ridge. It will officially open for traffic June 16th and will be toll-free for the first month.
