Traffic Management during Construction on the Lions Gate Bridge

After over 60 years of service to Vancouver, the Lions Gate bridge was suffering from one of the highest bridge crash rates in the region, major structural work was needed. Over the course of 2000 and 2001; the entire bridge deck was replaced with a wider one, the bridge was upgraded to regulation seismic standards, and lighting and traffic management systems were upgraded - all without major traffic disruptions. The project marked the first time worldwide that the deck and truss of a suspension bridge were replaced simultaneously while allowing traffic to use the bridge.
