The Pattullo Bridge is now closed for some major work and will remain off limits to drivers and pedestrians until 3am Monday.
The bridge is operated by Translink -- company spokesperson Derek Zabel explains the work.
"So what's happening to the bridge -- it's about 75 years old -- so there's been some damage to the asphalt, so what's going to happen is the whole bridge is going to be re-paved... particularly at the sound end, it's becoming a bit of a safety concern, so we're going to take this opportunity to re-pave the entire bridge and also examine the bridge deck and repair some of the pedestrian guard rails along the side as well."
Zabel says the work must be done before traffic picks up next month.
