Welcome to the George Massey Tunnel Replacement Project engagement website.
The purpose of this website is to provide you with information about the Project and give you an opportunity to provide input and share your thoughts, at key points throughout the Project.
The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure submitted its Application to the BC Environmental Assessment Office (EAO) for an environmental certificate to construct the Project. The Application Review period of up to 180 days is now underway. This review period includes a 60-day public comment period from August 3 to October 3, 2016. The first of three Environmental Assessment Open Houses will be held on Wednesday, August 17, 2016 (2:00 – 8:00 pm) at the Delta Town and Country (6005 Highway 17A at Highway 99).
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 Project includes a new bridge and related Highway 99 improvements between Bridgeport Road in Richmond and Highway 91 in Delta, dedicated transit/HOV lanes and a multiuse pathway for cyclists and pedestrians across the new bridge. The Province plans to fund the Project at least in part with user tolls. Funding partnerships are also being explored. Subject to environmental review, construction is expected to begin in 2017, with the new bridge completed by 2022.
