Langley highway widening project moves to next phase

Langley highway widening project moves to next phase

LANGLEY, B.C. – Highway widening in Langley, B.C. has reached a new phase.

As part of the Province of British Columbia’s Fraser Valley Highway 1 Corridor Improvement Program, high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes will be added along with a new 232nd St. interchange.

“We’re set to start major construction this summer to widen Highway 1 between 216th and 264th streets and upgrade another essential crossing at 232nd Street,” said Rob Fleming, B.C.’s minister of transportation and infrastructure, in a statement. “This is important progress in our plans to improve and widen Highway 1 through to Chilliwack, so we can improve travel and transit services for people in the Fraser Valley.”

Utilities have been relocated and other preliminary work is complete. Construction will begin this summer to widen approximately 10 kilometres of Highway 1. The wider highway will accommodate eastbound and westbound HOV and electric vehicle lanes in the median lane between the 216th Street and 264th Street interchanges.

A $140-million contract for the highway expansion and construction of new 232nd Street interchange work has been awarded to Hall Jacob JV (a BD Hall Constructors Corp., Jacob Bros. Construction Inc. joint venture), a release said.

The new 232nd Street interchange will have improved accessibility and better connect communities on either side of the highway, the release added, and the reconfigured crossing will include three-metre-wide multi-use pathways in both directions and increased height clearance.

Work is almost complete on the new Glover Road crossing, another component of the 216th-264th portion of the Fraser Valley Highway 1 improvements, and a wider, higher Glover Road crossing over Highway 1 will open soon.

The Highway 1 216th to 264th Street Widening Project is valued at $345 million with the federal government contributing as much as $96.05 million to the project through the New Building Canada Fund and the remainder of funding from the Province of B.C.
