Highway 91 at 72nd Avenue - Interchange Project

A new interchange at Highway 91 and 72 Avenue will remove the last remaining signalized intersection for through traffic on Highway 91, decreasing congestion and overall travel times along the corridor. This project is part of the strategy to address increased traffic demand on the corridor and over the Alex Fraser Bridge.

Traffic demand on the Highway 91 corridor – and over the Alex Fraser Bridge – continues to grow as development in Surrey and Delta increases. A strategy is being developed to reduce congestion in this area that will meet both short-term and long-term needs. Building an interchange at Highway 91 and 72 Avenue is an important part of this strategy as it will remove the last signalled intersection along the Highway 91 corridor, significantly easing congestion in the area.

Project cost:

$30 million ($20 million provincial, $10 million federal)

Status:

Currently presenting the finalized design to the public.
