Flatiron Constructors to begin work on Steveston Interchange

Flatiron Constructors to begin work on Steveston Interchange
PROVINCE OF B.C. — An aerial photograph shows the Richmond site where crews will soon begin early work for a five-lane interchange.

RICHMOND — Flatiron Constructors Canada Limited will be building the Steveston Interchange Project in Richmond starting this year.

“A new Steveston Interchange is key to improving the flow of traffic and transit around the Massey Tunnel,” said Rob Fleming, minister of transportation and infrastructure, in a statement. “As we replace the old Massey crossing with a new eight-lane, toll-free tunnel, the new interchange and other corridor improvements will result in travel-time savings and better options for everyone – whether they prefer to walk, cycle, take transit or drive.”

The value of the contract awarded to Flatiron Constructors Canada Limited is $44.25 million. The contract includes design and construction of the new Steveston Interchange and removal of the existing structure.

The province stated the interchange is a critical part of the Highway 99 Tunnel Program. They noted once the new tunnel is in place in 2030, travel time and reliability will be improved for traffic headed from Steveston Highway into the tunnel, further reducing congestion at the Steveston Interchange and on the Highway 99 corridor.

This year, Flatiron will begin relocation of utilities around the Steveston Interchange in preparation for construction, while it refines the design of the new interchange. Major construction on the project is expected to begin in 2023. The new interchange is expected to be in operation in 2025.

The Steveston Interchange Project will replace the existing two-lane overpass structure at Steveston Highway and Highway 99 with a new structure that allows for two eastbound lanes and three westbound lanes, including a left-turn lane. The new interchange will also improve access to transit stops and pedestrian and cycling connections across Highway 99.
