Public Consultation Opportunities

Take the opportunity to hear, get informed and speak up about transportation issues.

Lower Mainland and Coast:

  • Brunette Interchange Project
    Located on Highway 1, the Brunette Avenue interchange is heavily used by highway traffic headed for Coquitlam and New Westminster. Improving the Brunette overpass is critical for moving people and goods in this area and for emergency vehicles trying to get to and from Royal Columbian Hospital. Currently, this interchange is often a bottleneck on the Highway 1 corridor, especially at peak times. The BC Government is looking at options to unclog the bottleneck and get traffic moving again.

  • George Massey Tunnel Replacement
    The George Massey Tunnel is a key component of the regional and provincial transportation system, carrying more than 80,000 vehicles each day. An independent technical review of the George Massey Tunnel Crossing is underway. Recommendations from the review will help the B.C. government choose a solution to the safety and congestion issues at the tunnel that is best for the region and the province, reflects the views and vision of Metro Vancouver, and gets the best value for the public’s dollars. A report on the independent technical review is expected in spring 2018. The Terms of Reference can be found on the website.

  • Haney Bypass
    The Province of B.C. and the Government of Canada are investing $22.3 million in the development and construction of the intersection improvements to the Haney Bypass. The project focuses on the most critical areas of congestion along the Haney Bypass including Lougheed Highway east and west connections, Callaghan Road, and 227th Street. The project will help improve traffic flow along the Highway 7 corridor, while reducing collisions and improving pedestrian safety and multi-modal connectivity.
     
    The Project is currently 50% designed. We are looking for your feedback at our upcoming Public Information Session or through the Haney Bypass Online Feedback Form.

  • Highway 13 Widening Project
    The Governments of Canada and British Columbia have committed $25.5 million to widen a key portion of Highway 13 from two lanes to five lanes, building more capacity for cross border traffic at the Aldergrove/Lynden border crossing. Take this opportunity to provide input and ask questions.
  • McKenzie Interchange Project
    The Province of B.C. and the Government of Canada are investing $85 million in the development and construction of the McKenzie Interchange Project, a new interchange on the Trans-Canada Highway at the Intersection with Admirals Road and McKenzie Avenue in Saanich. This intersection is the number one bottleneck in the province outside of the Lower Mainland. The project will help improve traffic flow in the Capital Regional District while reducing collisions and improving pedestrian and cyclist safety.

  • Mt. Lehman Road 4-Laning Project
    Mt. Lehman Road in Abbotsford is a north-south provincial route that accommodates local, regional and international vehicle travel. It serves as the primary access to the Abbotsford International Airport, and connects the movement of people and goods to the Canada/USA border and beyond. Feedback will be collected on the Mt. Lehman Road 4-Laning project design, including traffic and safety improvements, driveway and access management, pedestrian and cycling improvements, and drainage and environmental improvements. The input received will be used to help identify possible issues and opportunities not currently identified in the project design.

  • Pattullo Bridge Replacement Project
    Replacement options for the aging Pattullo Bridge have undergone broad and extensive review since 2009, and there have been multiple opportunities for public input during the Pattullo Bridge Review Process and the current Pattullo Bridge Replacement Project. Collection of public feedback is ongoing.

Interior, North and East:

  • Highway 1 - Bruhn Bridge Replacement Project
    The Trans-Canada Highway 1 RW Bruhn Bridge and Approaches Project involves four laning of Highway 1 in Sicamous including replacement of the RW Bruhn Bridge. The project extends along Highway 1 west of Old Sicamous Road to east of Silver Sands Road, and includes intersection improvements/turn-lanes at Old Sicamous Road, Old Spallumcheen Road, Gill Avenue and Silver Sands Road.

  • Highway 97 - Peachland Transportation Study
    Input from the community engagement activities will be considered, along with technical data, government priorities and other information in evaluating options to meet future transportation needs of the Highway 97 Peachland Transportation Corridor.

  • Okanagan Lake Second Crossing Project - Planning Study
    The purpose of the study is to develop potential route proposals to address future mobility in the Central Okanagan area. The study will look at the needs of the travelling public, community land-use plans, provincial transportation priorities and a possible future second crossing of Okanagan Lake.

  • Quesnel Transportation Plan
    The public is invited to provide feedback on short, medium and long-term options to improve the Highway 97 corridor through Quesnel.
