Granville Bridge structural and seismic upgrades

We’re coordinating critical structural and seismic upgrades as part of the broader improvements to and around Granville Bridge. 

These upgrades include:

  • Repairing the concrete and steel
  • Replacing the expansion joints and bearings

TransLink Major Road Network and Bridges

These upgrades are partly funded by TransLink through its Major Road Network  Funding Program. In partnership with municipalities, TransLink helps plan and fund the region's major road network, which includes more than 600 kilometres of major arterial roads which carry commuter, transit, and truck traffic.

TransLink also funds:

  • Rehabilitation and seismic upgrades for major road network bridges, culverts, and retaining-wall structures
  • Infrastructure upgrades to provide safe and efficient facilities for moving people and goods across the region

What's happening

Construction for the structural upgrades is now underway and is focused underneath the north end of the bridge.

We'll be reaching out to the public in 2019 with a proposed design for the walking and cycling improvements.
