Coast Meridian Overpass Opening Video

The City of Port Coquitlam just opened the Coast Meridian Overpass, linking the southerly Costco-less but Rec Centre rich part of Port Coquitlam with the northerly Costco-rich but Rec Centre and Library poor part of Port Coquitlam.

Heading out for the Costco Sunday morning sample-palooza with the kids, we took a little detour over the new bridge. Not only do you get that cool feeling of being on a mini Golden Ears bridge, but being able to get from the Lougheed Highway straight to the centre of South Poco at Kingsway and Broadway will ease congestion at both the Mary Hill bypass and at Shaughnessy St.

The City of Port Coquitlam put together a little video of the opening festivities this past Saturday. Well done Poco!
