On Friday February 9th 2007 Premier Gordon Campbell announced the start of work on the new Pitt River bridge. Not a moment too soon.
The bridge is due to be completed in the Fall of 2009. To demonstrate that they mean business the contractor Kiewiet & Son was on site on the following Monday (yesterday) February 12 just two days after the announcement.
The Pitt River bridge is timed to complete with the Golden Ears Bridge that crosses from Langley into Maple Ridge. The two bridges will have a profound effect on the future of Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows.
