June 20, 2010, West Vancouver, B.C. – The moving of
the Old
Capilano Bridge has been successfully completed ahead of schedule and
two
westbound lanes of traffic have been restored on Marine Drive.

The bridge was moved June 19
in order to establish a detour route that will be required for
construction of
the new bridge as part of the $40-million Marine Drive/Lions Gate
transit
improvement project.

About 25 staff
worked on the
move, which began shortly after 6 p.m. and finished just before
midnight. The
early completion was attributed to the extensive advance planning by the
design
and construction team.

Motorists are
advised that
traffic patterns on this section of Marine Drive have changed and to use
caution.
