HORSESHOE BAY, B.C. — The Horseshoe Bay ferry terminal is getting a facelift, and truckers got their first glimpse at a number of changes on Friday.

Nine new toll booths were opened on the Trans-Canada Hwy. at the top of the hill by Exit 1 and a new off-ramp to Squamish and Whistler has been opened.

“We opened first thing (Friday) morning and things have been going quite well,” says B.C. Ferries spokeswoman, Deborah Dykes. “We have some extra terminal attendants inside the booths to answer questions and to make sure customers know where they’re going.”

New parking spaces were also opened up in the facility’s new upper holding compound, which will help relieve congestion on the Upper Levels Highway.

More work is continuing throughout the summer, and the $30-million project won’t be completed until the end of the year.
