LANGLEY, B.C. — Plans for the Hwy. 1/200 St. interchange near here are encountering delay after delay, but work is still progressing according to officials.

On Monday, city council gave third reading to a bylaw, which establishes uses for the southeast quadrant of the interchange. It’s the fourth and final quadrant to receive third reading.

Now, before proceeding with the final reading, officials must convince the Ministry of Transportation that traffic anticipated from development in the area will not be more than what was originally approved and that increased traffic will not affect the surrounding road system.

BA Blacktop, the company in charge of building the interchange must also provide plenty of assurances to the Ministry before it can begin work on the project. The company must meet conditions relating to infrastructure, highway access and greenway rights-of-way.
