<br />
The Alex Fraser Bridge is a cable-stayed bridge over the Fraser River and connects Richmond with North Delta in the Greater Vancouver Regional District, British Columbia. The bridge is named for Alex Fraser, a former B.C. Minister of Transportation who died of throat cancer.<br />
<br />
The bridge was the longest cable-stayed bridge in the world when it opened in 1986. It is 930m long with a main span of 465m. The towers are 154m tall.<br />
<br />
The bridge was constructed for the British Columbia Ministry of Transportation and forms part of British Columbia provincial highway 91. It was designed by Buckland and Taylor.<br /><br /><img src=http://www.gearthhacks.com/showimage.php?image=new/080505/204446fra.jpg>
