      Plus apparently Powell will be closed for the summer west of Clarke for a major road upgrade too.

      The aging Pattullo Bridge is in need of some repairs and maintenance, and as a result, Translink will be closing the bridge for three weekends. The dates the bridge will be closed are:
      • July 20-21
      • August 10-11
      • August 24-25

      The weekend closures will run from Friday at 9 p.m. until Monday at 3 a.m.
