The Middle Arm Bridge is one of 3 transit-only bridges in Metro Vancouver. It spans the middle arm of the Fraser River, linking Lulu Island with the Vancouver International Airport on Sea Island. It is used by the airport branch of the Canada Line, which opened in August 2009.
The bridge is a box girder prestressed concrete bridge, and is built using cost-efficient cantilever construction. It is designed to have very little impact on the surrounding environment. The integrated arch form is designed to appear minimal, while adequately supporting the weight of the trains that cross it.
The Moray Bridge, a swing bridge nearby, was also previously referred to as the Middle Arm Bridge.

Famous quotes containing the words bridge, middle and/or arm:
“A circle swoop, and a quick parabola under the bridge arches
Where light pushes through;
A sudden turning upon itself of a thing in the air.
A dip to the water.”
—D.H. (David Herbert)
“If these Essays were worthy of being judged, it might fall out, in my opinion, that they would not find much favour, either with common and vulgar minds, or with uncommon and eminent ones: the former would not find enough in them, the latter would find too much; they might manage to live somewhere in the middle region.”
—Michel de Montaigne (15331592)
“A state that denies its citizens their basic rights becomes a danger to its neighbors as well: internal arbitrary rule will be reflected in arbitrary external relations. The suppression of public opinion, the abolition of public competition for power and its public exercise opens the way for the state power to arm itself in any way it sees fit.... A state that does not hesitate to lie to its own people will not hesitate to lie to other states.”
—Václav Havel (b. 1936)
