It'll be the standard Translink Park & Ride rate of $3 per day.

^ I thought most park and rides were free?

All of the big park and rides cost money, as far as I know. Only the small ones are free.

I think the older grandfathered park & rides have kept their free status. All the West Coast Express ones, Scott Road Station, and Bridgeport Station are the only ones I know of that charge $3/day. I think the new Walnut Grove park & ride will be pay parking when built, although they could also keep the free lot at the rec centre? Although it'd be a bit of a walk to the bus loop or be served by limited buses only, like the 501, 590, and 595, so you'd have to walk to the bus loop to catch the bus to Braid Station.

No surprise that they did the Coast Meridian Bypass and the Pitt River Bridge too.

Sweet night pic there

Here are a couple pics I took, they are nothing great, the light was fading too fast on my way home from work.




And here is one of the gantry crane now fully assembled on the north approach.




This is a really hard project to photograph because there are very few decent vantage points, especially concerning the cape horn interchange. Many of the ramps are taking shape and are in interesting stages of construction but there is no where to park (safely) and take some pics.

Here is my flickr account:

There's steel on the outriggers for the roadway on both sides of the tower now:

You got it

I have some free time next week so I plan to take many more extensive photos. I cant wait until they start placing some girders on the #7 west bound to #1 eastbound ramp. That is likely the most impressive fly over in western Canada (most of the fly overs in the Prairies are built like the 99 / 91 interchange fly overs, with huge mounts of landfill, very boring....) The GEW to 200th flyover will still be my personal favorite though (by far the highest in Western Canada and it is actually an elevated fly over over an elevated road deck, almost unheard of in our place in the world)

Are there any girders in place near the Coleman on-ramp?
If so, can you please get a shot of that?

If you mean in regards to the Lougheed overpass (where eastbound crosses the freeway) then yes, they have the first segment of girders in place, and they have the next batch waiting alongside the freeway for the next major night operation.

And I will try and take some pictures, but that is a hard spot to find a good vantage point / stop, hehe.

Someone mentioned GEW to 200th St onramp? In some pictures that I took on opening it looks like a ski jump to nowhere. =P

I'm a little surprised actually... there used to be a good chunk of concrete used for projects like these, so seeing them use more steel is kind of cool. =O
