Pattullo Bridge Closed for 4 - 6 Weeks

Trestle Fire Causes Pattullo Bridge Closure

If you are planning a trip to Vancouver in the next little while and the Pattullo bridge is a part of your route, you need to reconsider.

The wooden trestle at the south end of the bridge was badly damaged by a suspicious fire early Sunday morning. The damaged section will be demolished and replaced which could take from 4 - 6 weeks.

The bridge sees an average of 80,000 users daily who need to find an alternate route, so be sure to add some extra time to your travel plans, or better still, just stay in Nanaimo.
