The 81-year-old Burrard Bridge will undergo safety and structural repairs starting Monday, February 3.

To ensure the bridge remains safe and in a state of good repair for many years to come, the City of Vancouver will replace 27 bearings and 19 expansion joints, and will perform concrete repairs and a deck inspection over the next five months.

There will be traffic impacts beginning at 5:00 a.m. on Monday, February 3:

  • Lanes will be reduced from five vehicle lanes to four
  • Two lanes in each direction will be operational

From March to July 2014, the bridge will operate with one vehicle lane southbound and two vehicle lanes northbound. Full access for cyclists and pedestrians will be maintained.

If you drive, consider alternate routes such as the Granville Bridge, which has eight lanes.
