Metro Vancouver's Pattullo Bridge will be closed this weekend for repair work.

The 77-year-old bridge will be closed to all traffic, including pedestrians and bicycles, at 8 p.m. PT Friday until 3 a.m. Monday morning.

TransLink says crews will be repairing sections of the concrete deck and repaving portions of the bridge.

This weekend's shutdown is the second of three weekend closures for summer maintenance work.

The complete list of closures is:

  • July 25 to 28
  • Aug. 15 to 18
  • Aug. 29 to Sept. 1

The Metro Vancouver mayors' council recently called for the aging bridge to be replaced by a new four-lane, tolled crossing across the Fraser River.
