Alex Fraser Bridge and New Westminster Quayside Boardwalk Views

July 14, 2009

2009-Alex Fraser Bridge View from New Westminter Quayside Boardwalk

We are fortunate indeed here in New Westminster to have some amazing iconic views right outsite our backyard.

The following excerpt taken from Buckland and Taylor: The Alex Fraser Bridge carries six lanes of traffic, and was the longest cable-stayed bridge in the world from 1986, when it opened, to 1991. It was the longest cable-stayed bridge in the Americas until the Cooper River Bridge (Charleston South Carolina) opened on July 16, 2005. The Alex Fraser Bridge was built in 27 months and had the lowest cost per unit of deck area of this type of structure in the world. The project won several design awards.
