What was this engagement about?
The Ministry of Transportation is working with the Metro Vancouver Mayors’ Task Force, Indigenous groups, TransLink, local municipalities and key stakeholders to develop and evaluate crossing options and is planning for interim improvements as a first phase to help alleviate congestion on Highway 99.
The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure invited the public to attend an information session for the George Massey Crossing Project and Highway 99 improvements.
Communities, stakeholders and the public were invited to learn more about:
- Plans for the first stage of the crossing project, which will help alleviate congestion on either side of the existing tunnel; and
- Results of work to date and next steps for selecting a preferred long-term solution.
