Spanning the Fraser River, the Golden Ears Bridge project cost a total of 808 million dollars. The 2410 metre cable stay bridge with three towers began construction in 2006, opening to traffic in June 2009.
Marcon was chosen as the fabricator due to the short timeline and complex nature of the project. In order to fabricate the elliptical guardrail design, our team developed specialized tooling to press round pipe into the elliptical profile required for the main span guardrail.
