The Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce is pleased with the arbitrator’s decision in favour of Coquitlam’s proposal for a two-lane bailey bridge connecting United Boulevard and Braid Street over the Brunette River. The crossing has been a contentious issue for Coquitlam and New Westminster for approximately 20 years.

“This is a great development for local businesses in the United Boulevard area that will enhance goods movement in and out of the Tri-Cities.” – Michael Hind, Executive Director

While the Chamber welcomes the new two-lane bridge, we look forward to a permanent solution that will connect United Boulevard with Braid Street, maximizing the efficiency of the flow of traffic and goods in and out of the region.

The Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce is a proactive network of business-minded individuals that are committed to acting as an accessible, visible, supportive and reciprocal resource to our members and the Tri-Cities at large, communicating their collective voice to help shape a prosperous business community.
