Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure —  Improvements to Lions Gate Bridge North Approach

In response to noise concerns from local residents, the Ministry has adjusted the schedule for nighttime work for the remaining construction.

Lane closures start at 7 p.m. Noisy work will take place only until midnight. 

Traffic delays are expected as a result of the changed work schedule. Drivers are also advised that this work will require the use of temporary road plates. All travellers are encouraged to drive with caution and watch for road signs indicating "Bump Ahead".

This change also requires daytime closures  of the bridge and viaduct sidewalks. Only one sidewalk will be closed at any given time.  Detour signs will be posted to direct cyclists and pedestrians to the open sidewalk so that they can continue to use the bridge at all times. 

During regular business hours, residents can contact the Project Information Office at 604-527-3103 or by email at LionsGateBridge@gov.bc.ca. With noise concerns during evening hours, please call Mr. Peter Chiu at 604-838-0764.
