LANGLEY, B.C. — Shovels are in the ground for the Highway 1 expansion in Langley as the Glover Road crossing replacement begins.
Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure Rob Fleming broke ground recently along with Cloverdale-Langley MP John Aldag, MLA Megan Dykeman and Langley Mayor Eric Woodward, a press release reads.
The $345 million project will see the Grover Crossing replaced, height clearance raised and lane expansions from 216 Street to 264 Street.
Completion of the crossing replacement is expected in summer 2024.
Other elements of the widening project, such as the lane expansions and replacement of other crossings including a rail crossing, are expected to be tendered this winter with work starting by spring 2023.
“It’s exciting to see work underway to help the movement of goods, improve road safety and address increasing traffic volumes in the region,” said Woodward in the release.
