Greater Vancouver’s geography includes inlets of the vast Pacific and the delta of the mighty Fraser; thus a lot of bridges. The Port Mann is one of the biggest and it’s getting a bigger replacement; I have pictures.
Not only does it connect Vancouver to our biggest burb Surrey, it carries the Trans-Canada Highway. So it really is a big deal.
These are snapped leaning out of and through the van windows as Lauren drove us across the bridge, from south to north. Here, as we head onto the bridge, a sunset with infrastructure.
The old bridge is pretty big but the fast-growing replacement makes it feel small and old.
When the old bridge is gone you’ll be driving between all these suspension wires and will need a helicopter to get a picture like this.
Eventually we got north of the Fraser and turned homeward into the sunset.
