Golden Ears Bridge - Side viewThe reason for the odd name ;o)
"The project was named through a community process and reflects the well-known lower Fraser Valley landmark, the Golden Ears peaks, which crown Mount Blanshard in Golden Ears Provincial Park. The successful submission to name the bridge was that of George Tabert, a local pastor."
Golden Ears Bridge at Langley BCThe Golden Ears Bridge is a six-lane extradosed* bridge spanning the Fraser River & connecting Langley on the south side with Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge on the north side. (An extradosed bridge is a cross between a girder bridge and a cable-stayed bridge.) The bridge, which opened to traffic on June 16, 2009, replaced a ferry service several kilometers upstream. The new bridge will be run by a private consortium until June 2041. More info:
