RICHMOND, B.C. — A request for qualifications is officially out for one of the largest infrastructure projects in British Columbia.
The $4.15 billion George Massey Tunnel replacement project will replace the aging tunnel with an eight-lane, toll-free immersed tube tunnel. The tunnel will have active transportation paths for pedestrian crossings, according to a news release.
The project scope includes replacing the Deas Slough Bridge and the addition of a southbound general-purpose lane on Highway 99 between Westminster Highway and Highway 17.
“This is a major milestone,” said Rob Fleming, minister of transportation and infrastructure. “We are making significant progress on this important project that will improve travel times and transit options for people who live on both sides of the Fraser River.”
The project will be subject to a project labour agreement as was the Steveston Interchange before it.
