Crews break ground on Steveston interchange project

Crews break ground on Steveston interchange project
PROVINCE OF B.C. - Ground was officially broken this month on the new five-lane Steveston interchange in Richmond as part of the project that will see the George Massey Tunnel replaced with a new toll-free crossing.

RICHMOND, B.C. – It’s official. Work has started on the new five-lane Steveston interchange in Richmond.

The project is part of a larger effort that will see the George Massey Tunnel replaced with a new toll-free crossing.

Officials say the interchange will improve public transit, shorten travel times for drivers and improve active transportation connections. 

“It’s an important day as we move forward on addressing one of the worst bottlenecks in Richmond,” said Rob Fleming, minister of transportation and infrastructure in a statement. “I look forward to work getting underway that will improve connections for transit users, drivers and cyclists, and tie in to the new eight-lane toll-free tunnel that will replace the George Massey Tunnel.”

This summer crews will begin with clearing and utility relocations. Major construction will begin later this year, with the new interchange expected to be in operation in 2025.

The Steveston interchange will replace the existing two-lane overpass at Steveston Highway and Highway 99 with a five-lane structure that accommodates two eastbound lanes and three westbound lanes, including a left-turn lane.

The new interchange will improve access to transit stops and provide safe pedestrian and cycling connections across Highway 99, with sidewalks and separated bike lanes on both sides of the overpass.
