Project Name: Pitt River Bridge & Mary Hill Interchange
Year in Operation: 2009
Sector: Transportation
Subsector: Bridge, Roads
Status: In Operation
Type: Substantial Alteration of Existing Facility
Description: The Pitt River Bridge and Mary Hill Interchange is a standalone project component of the North Fraser Perimeter Road project, and part of British Columbia’s Gateway Program. The program is the Ministry of Transportation’s plan to meet the needs of B.C.’s growing economy and population as well as an increasing Asia-Pacific trade. The bridge will replace an existing swing bridge and an interchange at the Mary Hill Bypass intersection. The new bridge will host three lanes of westbound traffic and four lanes of eastbound traffic. It will also provide 16 meters of marine traffic clearance in addition to travel lanes and facilities for pedestrians and cyclists. The design of the bridge allows for the expansion of one more lane to be added in the future and used to meet future demand as an HOV lane, bus lane, or light rail rapid transit.

Souces of Project Support (Non-monetary)

Checkbox Checked Land: The conceptual design of the project minimized the use of land outside the existing right-of-way. This was considered a key factor in site selection. Generally, the project only needed temporary land support during construction activities.
Checkbox Checked Environmental Clearance: Transport Canada and the Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada approved the project tin July of 2006 stating that the project met the requirements of the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act (CEAA). Additionally, an environmental management plan was developed to ensure the project was constructed in an environmentally safe manner. The management plan was approved by the Ministry and regulatory agencies in 2007, before construction began, and addressed issues such as, wildlife and vegetation, archaeology and heritage resources, contaminated sites, fisheries and aquatic resources, hydraulics, land use, navigation, and water and air quality.
