New ramps on B.C.’s Highway 1 to ease congestion
Surrey, British Columbia – The Government of Canada and the Province of British Columbia have announced a $2.5 million project to construct new on- and off-ramps at the current Highway 1 overpass at 192nd Street. The new project is expected to ease congestion, improve safety, and result in environmental and social benefits.
Construction will begin in the fall of 2005, following public consultation, and is expected to be completed by March 31, 2006. The Government of Canada will contribute $900,000, while B.C. will contribute $1.6 million. The project will consist of an off-ramp from Highway 1 eastbound, turning north onto the 192nd St. overpass; and an on-ramp onto Highway 1 westbound, starting at 192nd St. southbound.
