VIDEO: Port Mann Bridge centre span installed
The Port Mann Bridge, a $3.3 billion, eight lane replacement for the current older bridge spanning the Fraser River between Surrey and Coquitlam, B.C., reached a milestone on June 21 with the installation of the centre span of the bridge.
B.C. Transportation and Infrastructure minister Blair Lekstrom and Transportation Investment Corporation CEO Mike Proudfoot were on hand to commemorate the occasion. Proudfoot was also able to give details to the Journal of Commerce about the construction of the eight lane bridge and the eventual disposal of the old bridge, resulting in an additional two lanes.
With the added lanes, the Port Mann Bridge will become the widest structure of its kind in North America.
