NORTH VANCOUVER, B.C. — There’s a light at the end of the tunnel for truckers who have been frustrated by delays caused by the restructuring of the Lions Gate Bridge.
The last of 54 deck sections was replaced last weekend, meaning the end is now in sight.
Bridge closures will continue through October, including the Oct. 13 and 14 weekend, when traffic plates will be removed from the south end of the bridge.
However, the bulk of the work is now complete, and the construction firm responsible for the project is now just applying finishing touches, which are expected to wrap up by the end of this year.
If weather cooperates, even the repaving of the bridge will be completed this fall. But if warm, dry weather isn’t in store for the Vancouver area, than that will take place in the spring, resulting in more road closures.
