3 to bid on new Pattullo

The Pattullo Bridge replacement project is moving forward, the province announced Friday.

Three pre-qualified bidding teams have been chosen to participate in a competitive design process to construct a new, toll-free Pattullo Bridge between Surrey and New Westminster.

“The existing Pattullo Bridge is nearing the end of its useful life,” Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure Claire Trevena said in a press release. “The selection of the three teams gets us closer to breaking ground on this project that will improve safety and reliability for residents, commercial vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians.”

The three bidding teams are: 

  • Fraser Community Connectors/Kiewit Canada Development Corp./T.Y. Lin International and International Bridge Technologies, Inc.
  • Flatiron, Dragados, Carlson Pattullo joint venture/ACS Infrastructure Canada Inc., Hochtieff PPP Solutions North America, LLC and COWI North America, Ltd.
  • Fraser Crossing Partners/SNC-Lavalin Capital Inc. and Acciona Infrastructure Canada Inc.

The $1.377-billion project will see a new four-lane crossing replace the existing bridge. It will have wider lanes and better connections to road networks on either side, as well as dedicated pedestrian and cyclist lanes separated from traffic.

The project will be funded and owned by the province via the Transportation Investment Crown corporation, which was involved in the Port Mann Bridge project. With tolls removed on that bridge, TI Corp. will provide oversight and management of major projects across the province.

The new bridge is expected to open in 2023.
