Fraser Crossing Partners - a 50/50 joint venture between Aecon and Acciona – has been selected by the province of British Columbia to design, build and partially finance the project. The team had been named as preferred bidder last month (link opens in new tab).
The new four-lane cable-stayed bridge over the Fraser River will provide network connections to New Westminster and Surrey.
Early construction activities are expected to begin in the first quarter of this year, with the new bridge scheduled to open in 2023. Full project completion is due in the fourth quarter of 2025, following the removal of the existing bridge.
Aecon Group president and chief executive officer Jean-Louis Servranckx said: “The Pattullo Bridge Replacement is one of the largest infrastructure projects in British Columbia and Aecon is pleased to work with Acciona and our valued client to improve the mobility of commuters, cyclists and pedestrians between surrounding communities.”
