Patullo Bridge Rainbow

The Pattullo Bridge is an arch-shaped truss bridge located in the Metro Vancouver region of British Columbia, Canada. Constructed in 1936–37, it spans the Fraser River and links the city of New Westminster on the north bank of the river to the city of Surrey on the south bank. The bridge was named in honour of Thomas Dufferin Pattullo, former premier of British Columbia. The bridge's base is constructed of wood. A key link between Surrey and the rest of Greater Vancouver, according to TransLink, the Pattullo bridge handles an average of 67,000 cars and 3400 trucks daily, or roughly 20 percent of vehicle traffic across the Fraser River. The bridge's dark orange colour and arch shape cause it to resemble the Port Mann Bridge, located a few kilometres upstream. ~Wikipedia
