Port Mann, Golden Ears Bridges Rack Up Losses

CTV News Vancouver reports, “Public toll bridge operators in the Lower Mainland would have to win the lottery six times in a year to make up for multi-million dollar losses that may have taxpayers on the hook. The Port Mann Bridge and the Golden Ears Bridge together lost more than $127 million last year, as drivers continued to avoid the tolls by taking free routes instead.” A public watchdog tells the site, “The proposed 10-lane toll bridge to replace the George Massey Tunnel could also break the bank.”

Delta Optimist reports that the first public open house (August 17) on the Massey Tunnel replacement project drew a large crowd of mostly supportive BC residents.
