Drove the whole thing this afternoon, just for shits and giggles before going over to my parents place.

Very cool, I must say. Took no time to get from 176st all the way to Hwy99. Only stupid thing is, there is no exit to go Hwy99 SOUTH when you are headed towards the Ferries. Unless I was blind and missed something? Saw the exit for Hwy99 NORTH, for the airport and Vancouver.

Very hard not to speed along here. Especially this afternoon. It was basically empty, but I know this will change once more people start using it.

Drove this the other day. Fucking brilliant! I now have no reason to take the Port Mann bridge!

I got on it at the east side of the Patullo Bridge and it cut about 30 mins off my time to get to Abbotsford from where I live. Couldn't say anything bad about it except the pic below...that corner is a little at an awkward decline and is deceptively sharper than expected. I imagine there will be more than one accident there especially if road conditions are poor or speed is a factor. You really need to do the speed limit and nothing more in that specific area.

I think the Bridgeview area is going to explode. My bets are that within the next 5 years, it is going to look a lot like Clayton. I noticed that there are a lot of lots of sale and they have a hot looking brewery in that area now. Nuke the trash, nuke the car lots, throw some townhomes in, re-build the school, update the playground, add a Starbucks....white people will come.

Hey now, where do you think you are?? This is Revscene, where everyone is an expert driver and has a car capable of miraculous performance - you can't say shit like that around here!

I drove the 176Ave to the Patullo Bridge a couple of months ago. I never even knew about it but we found it through Google Maps. Today I took it from Tsawassen to the Alex Fraser. I think it's great! I think the speed limit should be set at 90 or 100 instead of 80 though.

Drove the latest open section on Christmas Eve from the ferry into Richmond, thought I took the wrong turn-off at first.
Then drove it back from New West. 20 minutes to the ferry terminal. Limit should definitely be higher than 80. 110 is pretty comfortable...
