Port Mann Bridge: Where are the numbers?
Maybe it’s too early, but has anyone heard whether the number of vehicles using the Port Mann Bridge is meeting predictions?
I’ve guessed that there won’t be a lot of traffic leakage to other routes, given the convenience of the new bridge and seamlessness of the tolling system. There’s still a lot of construction happening on Highway 1, so it may be too soon to know at what level the patronage will stabilize .
But, as soon as possible, we should get an indication as to whether the numbers are on target to pay for the widest bridge in the world. Or whether we have a Clem7 in the making.
If we don’t get some numbers before the election, that will be a very bad sign.
