It’s been a long wait, but Seymour River is finally getting its new pedestrian bridge this August. Construction is starting in just a few short weeks.
North Shore hikers have anxiously been awaiting for the new bridge.
Once complete, it will reconnect the Fisherman’s Trail with both the east and west banks of the Seymour River.
Seymour River Suspension Bridge
The new suspension bridge is to replace the original Twin Bridges. They were damaged due to flooding from a rockslide in 2014.
According to Metro Vancouver, surrounding trails will still be accessible during the majority of the bridge’s construction.
Further construction is taking place in the area, including a new vehicular bridge at Riverside Drive and replacement stairs for the Baden-Powell trail. Additional improvements and landscaping for various trail connections are also in the works.
