Photo: Orange You Glad It's A Bridge

The Pattullo Bridge, connecting New Westminster to Surrey, is the oldest crossing of the Fraser River in this part of the Lower Mainland that's still readily accessible to the average person - the original crossing just east of it is only open to trains these days. Once they finish construction of the new Port Mann Bridge, given what I've seen in the news I wouldn't be surprised to see a replacement for the Pattullo rising in the next few years, or at least for it to undergo serious modernization. I mean, for one thing, it was designed and built in the 1930s - to what degree did its designers build it to survive earthquakes?

This photo was taken from the new Queen's Park pedestrian overpass above McBride Boulevard.
