The Pattullo Bridge will be closed for three weekends this summer for repair and repaving.

The first weekend scheduled for a shutdown is July 25 to 28. It will close Friday at 8 p.m. and reopen Monday at 3 a.m. The bridge is also scheduled to be closed the weekends of Aug. 15-18 and Aug. 29 to Sept. 1. However, those dates may change because the work is weather dependent.

While the work is being done TransLink, the bridge’s owner, will review the condition of the bridge’s driving surface and make improvements as necessary. But all of the work is maintenance only. Structural issues such as narrow lanes, seismic upgrades or barriers to protect pedestrians and cyclists will not be included.

While the bridge will be closed to all traffic, including bicycles and pedestrians, emergency vehicles will have access.

During the closure two bus routes will be affected. The N19 NightBus will be rerouted via the Alex Fraser and Queensborough bridges while the 321 in Surrey on Sunday morning  will end at the Scott Road loop.
