Pattullo Bridge, British Columbia

A render of the new Pattullo Bridge across the Fraser River between Surrey and New Westminster (near Vancouver). It will be a $ 1.4 billion bridge replacement project, and tolls have been scrapped! It will replace the current obsolete Pattullo Bridge which was built in 1937 and currently carries far more traffic than was ever envisioned.

Drove through the eternally slow 403 - QEW bottleneck yesterday. It seems like that stretch has been under construction for years. Anyone have any idea when this mess will be finished?

Don't hold your breath.
I think 2019 will replace the first Ford Drive bridge (Hamilton Bound).
2020 will replace the 2nd one (Toronto Bound).
2021 will rehab the ramp bridge (QEW to 403 over Ford).

London is currently in a last min scramble to decide if we want a Bus Rapid Transit network.

It heavily contrasts to the cancelled freeway network plan that was in a last min scramble.

Some interesting history here from a 3-part documentary from CTV London

Interesting 3 part serial on the history of the decision making process of where to build expressways in and around London.

The bridge of Highway 401 over Ojibway Parkway in Windsor, Ontario is now under construction. This is the last exit in Canada before the bridge to Detroit.

Deerfoot Trail, Calgary, Alberta

Deerfoot Trail upgrades to create jobs, cut commute

Deerfoot Trail is the busiest roadway in Alberta with an average of 175,000 vehicles travelling on it every day. The province is adding both northbound and southbound lanes to 21 kilometres of Deerfoot Trail between Beddington Trail and Anderson/Bow Bottom Trail, to improve traffic flow and ease congestion.

Multiple interchanges will also be upgraded with additional lanes at Memorial Drive, 17 Avenue, Glenmore Trail, Southland Drive and Anderson/Bow Bottom Trail to reduce commute times at key bottlenecks.

Calgarians rely on Deerfoot Trail as the city’s most used north-south vehicle corridor. This major infrastructure project will transform Deerfoot Trail into a modern freeway that meets the current and future needs of a growing, active city.
