CITY OF SURREY — Surrey officials break ground on the Nicomekl River Bridge Replacement project.

SURREY, B.C. — Crews in Surrey have begun building the new Nicomekl River Bridge crossing on King George Boulevard.

Work includes replacing the aging two-lane timber trestle bridge and the decommissioned single-lane Bailey Bridge.

The new crossing will expand capacity from three vehicle lanes to four and add multi-use paths for walking and cycling.

“With some parts of our region still feeling the devastating impacts of last year’s flood events, we have seen firsthand just how critical it is to replace aging infrastructure,” said Mayor Doug McCallum in a press release. “A modern crossing is long overdue and the new Nicomekl Bridge will ensure there is safe and efficient movement for people, goods and emergency vehicles in and out of the growing south Surrey community. I am really proud of our continued commitment to public safety and would like to thank the provincial government for their collaboration on this project.”

Work on the crossing is expected to wrap up by winter 2022/2023. Delays are anticipated throughout construction and drivers are encouraged to consider alternate routes. 

The total project cost is estimated at $22.5 million and is being led and delivered by the city. The province entered into an agreement with the city to contribute $11.5 million for construction of ministry-owned infrastructure.

In addition to building the new crossing, crews will complete road improvements along King George Boulevard from the Park and Ride intersection to Crescent Road.
