The original Marpole Bridge was constructed in 1902. When it was damaged in 1966, a replacement bridge was opened in 1967. It is owned by the Canadian Pacific Railway.
This bridge is not to be confused with the road bridge of the same name that was dismantled in 1957.
July 9th 2014 fire
Just after 4:30pm, a fire caused heavy smoke to pour from the bridge coming from the wooden trestle. The Oak Street Bridge, which was located next to the bridge was closed to traffic both ways because of heavy smoke. Flights from YVR or coming to YVR were re-routed or delayed, and traffic was detoured from the bridge.
The swing span has since been removed, but the turntable and upstream protection berm remain.
