Project Description:

The George Massey Tunnel is a key component of the regional and provincial transportation system, carrying an average of 80,000 vehicles each day. The Province of British Columbia is constructing a replacement crossing to meet the growing demand and in recognition of the current structure’s declining lifespan.

The Project scope includes a new 10-lane bridge, with four general travel lanes and one dedicated transit/HOV lane in each direction, Highway 99 improvements, including dedicated transit lanes between Bridgeport Road in Richmond and Highway 91 in Delta, replacement of three interchanges and the Deas Slough bridge, construction of multi-use pathways on either side of the bridge and decommissioning of the tunnel.

Construction is expected to begin in 2017, with the new bridge opening in 2022, followed by tunnel decommissioning.

The Project Definition Report and business case were developed following three years of technical and engineering work, two phases of consultation and ongoing meetings with stakeholder groups.
