Metro Vancouver's Pattullo Bridge will be closed this weekend for repair work.

The 77-year-old bridge will be closed to all traffic, including pedestrians and bicycles, at 8 p.m. PT Friday until 3 a.m. Monday morning.

Translink says crews will be repairing sections of the concrete deck and repaving portions of the bridge.

The complete list of closures includes:

- July 25 to 28.

- Aug. 15 to 18.

- Aug. 29 to Sept. 1.

The Metro Vancouver mayors' council recently called for the aging bridge to be replaced by a new four-lane, tolled crossing.
