Phase 3A of the Fraser Valley Highway 1 Corridor Improvement Program has begun, including expansion through the Fraser Valley to the Sumas Prairie, as well as accelerated advance work along the Highway 1 median east of 264th Street.
This work will prepare the area between 264th Street and Mt. Lehman Road for the addition of high occupancy vehicle (HOV)/electric vehicle lanes and other multi-modal upgrades.
This phase also includes a new 264th Street Interchange, which is designed to allow for more efficient goods movement and truck parking. The new interchange is in procurement, with construction expected to begin in 2024.
The 264th Street Interchange and associated highway widening is one of the three major construction projects that make up Phase 3A. The other projects will be upgrades to the Mt. Lehman Interchange and 3.7 kilometres of highway widening, and replacement of the Bradner Road overpass with 3.9 kilometres of highway widening. Completion of Phase 3A is expected in 2029.
Work is underway on Phase 2 between 216th and 264th streets, with a new Glover Road overpass currently under construction and completion expected in summer 2024.
