Don’t overbuild the Pattullo

Re: All bridge options have tolls, June 6.

After reading the options being considered by TransLink to replace the Pattullo Bridge, I was disappointed to see that, once again, the clear solution to the bridge problem is a two-deck bridge, top northbound and bottom southbound – similar to the bridge found to the south in Seattle – and if structurally possible, a box-frame construction that size-wise and weight-wise could fit onto existing Pattullo Bridge footings, saving taxpayers millions in new bridge construction.

With new materials and engineering systems it does not make sense to overbuild like the Port Mann Bridge.
