TransLink’s Solution for Port Mann Bridge Icing
Second longest cable-stayed bridge in North America and the widest bridge in the world
Mayhem on the Port Mann Bridge averted
Bid to avoid another closure




TIC, the Crown agency that operates the new 10-lane toll bridge, has responded
to two weather-related events that caused 100 ICBC insurance claims.

In the first incident, chunks of ice fell off some of the bridge’s 288 cables, landing on
and damaging cars on Dec. 19, 2012. More recently, ice and fog, with help from
drivers going too fast for road conditions, resulted in accidents involving 40 cars
on Jan. 3, 2013. Both instances forced the closure of the
Port Mann Bridge in Surrey, B.C..

As well as a weather station and sensors, covered bridge trusses are now installed
on the Port Mann Bridge in a bid to avoid another closure.
