The proposed Fraser River Tunnel Project includes the construction of a new, eight-lane immersed tube tunnel that will replace the existing George Massey Tunnel on Highway 99. The new tunnel will have three vehicle lanes and a dedicated transit lane in each direction, with a separated active transportation corridor for cyclists and pedestrians.
The project also includes:
- Replacement of the Deas Slough Bridge
- Removal of the existing tunnel once the new tunnel is in operation
The Project includes a combination of temporary construction components, permanent infrastructure components and decommissioning/removal of existing infrastructure activities. Location details, which define the Project area, are outlined in the Project components map below. A complete list of Project components is available in Table 3.1-1 in the Fraser River Tunnel Project Initial Project Description.
