Pattullo Bridge in BC to start construction in 2019

 

Even as British Columbian politicians discuss union contracts surrounding a community benefits proposal, leaders of the planned Pattullo Bridge replacement say the $1.4-billion project remains on budget and ready for a summer 2019 construction start.

The contracts under discussion would ensure pay raises for a new Community Benefits Agreement proposal that prioritizes the hiring of underserved populations. The new program could add $100 million to the cost of the bridge, a figure the government says was already built into the stated project costs.

As contractors look forward to bidding on portions of the project, the new four-lane bridge will have wider lanes, walking and cycling lanes separated from traffic and better network connections on either side of the crossing to better serve traffic moving into New Westminster or Surrey. Design will also allow future expansion to six lanes, although government models don’t show that need in the foreseeable future.

The request for qualifications for a contractor to design build and finance the project closes in September. The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure will select up to three respondent teams to participate in the next phase of the competitive selection process, which is the request for proposal stage. The replacement project will be delivered, owned and operated by the B.C. government.
