Port Mann Bridge set to open
The Port Mann Bridge, one of the largest infrastructure projects undertaken in British Columbia and the widest bridge in the world, will open to eight lanes of traffic on Dec. 1 with tolling to begin a week later.
The beginning of the month also marks the completion of interchange improvements and highway widening east of the bridge, including more than 20 kilometres of new HOV lanes extending to Langley.
Construction will continue past Dec. 1 to bring the bridge up to its full 10 lane capacity, and work will continue between the Cape Horn Interchange and Vancouver.
Peter Kiewit Sons Co. and Flatiron Constructors Canada Limited were awarded a $2.46 billion fixed-price contract by the B.C. government to design and build the new bridge and to widen Highway 1 from Langley to Vancouver.
