Four-lane extension to Lower Mainland border route begins

SURREY, B.C. — Work is underway to widen the Hwy 15 corridor between Surrey and the U.S. border.

The project will see the widening of Hwy. 15 in Surrey from 32nd Ave. to the Roger Pierlet Overhead, and from 68A Ave. to 92nd Ave. The project includes grade construction, soil preparation, asphalt removal, paving and electrical installations.

“By investing in projects like these, (Canada) is helping to support the economy by reducing bottlenecks. We are also facilitating the flow of goods across our borders and making the crossings safer than ever,” said Russ Hiebert, MP for South Surrey-White Rock-Cloverdale, on behalf of Transport Minister Lawrence Cannon. “Better links with Canada’s main trading partner will also contribute to the economic well-being of the Lower Mainland and Canada.”

Ottawa and the Government of B.C. are cost-sharing this latest project, with most of the work being funded through the Border Infrastructure Fund.
