Winter Safety on Alex Fraser and Port Mann Bridges Explained

Winter doesn’t mess with the Lower Mainland all too often. But when it does, our maintenance efforts go beyond the standard plowing and sanding of highways. Our attention is also drawn skyward to the cables on the Alex Fraser Bridge and Port Mann Bridge.

Snow and ice can build up around the cables that support the bridges, becoming a safety hazard to traffic below if left to freeze, melt and potentially fall. To combat the risk, we developed cable collar systems as a mitigation measure to reduce snow and ice forming and falling.  Learn more @TranBC
