Eight lanes on new Port Mann open Saturday

On Saturday (Dec1) eight lanes on the new 10-lane Port Mann Bridge will open up as will parts of the South Fraser Perimeter Road.

Saturday will also see the partial opening of the new South Fraser Perimeter Road.

An announcement marking the milestone was made Friday by BC Transportation Minister Mary Polak and Federal International Trade Minister Ed Fast.

Friday was the last day for early-bird sign-ups for those TReO accounts. If you got your application in by Friday, you got a $30 credit, which amounts to 20 free car trips across the span, on top of the introductory $1.50 toll rate for one year.

The tolls themselves kick in December 8th.
