By the end of June, the Lynn Creek Bridge will sport a brand new colour: Lions Gate Green.
The iconic “Lions Gate Green” will help preserve the steel truss bridge and is better suited to remain vibrant after many North Shore rainy winters, says the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure.
“The Lynn Creek Bridge colour is being changed to the same green as the Lions Gate Bridge to better hide discolouration and mildew stains that can occur after repeated rain,” said Danielle Pope of the Ministrit of Transportation and Infrastructure.
“The iconic “Lions Gate Green” will help preserve the steel truss bridge and is better suited to remain vibrant after many North Shore rainy winters,” he said.
Recoating of the existing Lynn Creek Bridge is underway and a temporary containment “bubble” has been installed over a portion of the Lynn Creek Bridge.
Sandblasting is taking place inside the bubble to remove the old paint and debris before recoating occurs. The bubble containment prevents the escape of debris and abrasives to the public and surrounding environment.
The bubble will move across the structure in 3 phases until work is complete in June.
As the newly painted structure is revealed the Lynn Creek Bridge will be transformed from its previous faded and stained Orange colour to the same Green colour as the Lions Gate Bridge.
Recoating works takes place six to seven days per week between 7 am and 5 pm.
