Rattan Mall has written in The Indo-Canadian Voice on the Burrard Bridge project and Saturday’s opening ceremonies.  The article treads that line between broad overview and detail very nicely.
Good quotes from Heritage Consultant Don Luxton, too, that help to understand the bridge’s importance and the project’s elements that support heritage.

 Luxton said: “As a coastal city, Vancouver is defined by its iconic bridges. The Burrard Bridge, opened in 1932, provided a gateway between downtown and the new developing west side of Vancouver, and it survives as one of the only truly Art Deco bridges in the world.”
