Highway 91/17 and Deltaport Way Overview
The Highway 91/17 and Deltaport Way Upgrade Project is a combination of improvements to existing Highway 91, Highway 17, Highway 91 Connector and Deltaport Way to improve travel safety and efficiency.
These upgrades will improve local and commercial travel in the area, reduce conflicts between commercial vehicles and other traffic. They also complement the completed 72nd Avenue Interchange Project and the Alex Fraser Bridge Improvements.
The project will:
- Improve travel time and reliability through Delta, with congestion-reduction travel time savings that will help reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
- Improve traffic safety for goods movers and the travelling public, with less collision risk and better operating hours at the Nordel commercial vehicle inspection facility.
- Support community and economic development, with better access to employment areas, faster access between South Delta and North Delta/Surrey, improved cycling connections, improved permitting and inspection service for commercial vehicle operators.
The anticipated cost of the project is approximately $260 million with joint funding from the National Infrastructure component of the New Building Canada Fund, Vancouver Fraser Port Authority, the Province of B.C., and Tsawwassen First Nation.
