New Golden Ears Bridge (Greater Vancouver) - First Look

Got a personal tour of the bridge yesterday - with nary a person on it...  The views of the North Shore Mountains - and Mount Baker in Washington - are just amazing!  It's a beautiful structure connecting Port Kells in Surrey to Pitt Meadows, and Maple Ridge to Langley and Surrey on the South...  Part of the Gateway Project started with cooperation from the Federal Liberal Government, it should save commuters many thousands of hours in commute times, and FUEL - helping the environment immensely in the offing.  Trucking will be routed to this bridge to the warehouse and cargo centers in Port Coquitlam, Coquitlam, and New Westminister, and the new "South Fraser Connector" will be a truck route running along the South of the Fraser River... diverting trucks to the 2nd busiest Port on the West Coast of North America (Surrey's Fraser Docks).

Above is a shot I took, looking South towards Langley and the US Border... using a 200mm Sigma lens on a Canon DSLR...
