VICTORIA, B.C. — The Department of Transportation in B.C. has completed the second round of consultations on the access and interchange improvements to the Port Mann Bridge and Hwy. 1 between Vancouver and Langley.
More than 1,050 people participated in the consultation at nine public open houses and 21 stakeholder meetings, as well as by web, mail and fax.
The feedback will be considered as the ministry determines which options to further refine as preliminary designs and for environmental review.
The Port Mann/Highway 1 project is one component of the Gateway Program. It includes widening Hwy. 1, twinning the Port Mann Bridge, upgrading interchanges and improving access and safety on Hwy. 1 from the McGill interchange in Vancouver to 216th Street in Langley, a distance of approximately 37 km.
Consultations on improvements to the Brunette Avenue and Cape Horn interchanges will continue through January 2007, as pre-design concepts are available.
The public consultation summary report and further information on the Gateway Program are available online at www.gatewayprogram.bc.ca.
