SURREY, B.C. – Work has begun to complete the widening of the Hwy. 15 corridor, from Surrey, B.C. to the US border, in an effort to ease congestion and travel time. Having a continuous four-lane highway from the Trans-Canada Highway to the Pacific Highway border crossing is expected to improve access for truckers to and from the US.

“We are committed to working with the federal government to open up our transportation gateways and improve the movement of goods and people,” said Transport Minister Kevin Falcon.

The Government of Canada and the Government of British Columbia are cost-sharing this latest project, with most of the work being funded through the Border Infrastructure Fund.

This project will see the widening of Hwy. 15 in Surrey from 32nd Avenue to the Roger Pierlet Overhead, and from 68A Avenue to 92nd Avenue.

Work includes grade construction, soil preparation, asphalt removal, paving and electrical installations.
