The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure has worked with the Metro Vancouver Mayors’ Task Force, Indigenous groups, TransLink, local municipalities and key stakeholders to develop and evaluate crossing options for a replacement crossing of the Fraser River at Highway 99. The ministry is planning for interim improvements as a first phase to help alleviate traffic congestion on Highway 99.

The business case was submitted in December 2020 and includes the two shortlisted options presented to the public in February and March 2020 – an immersed tube tunnel and a long-span bridge. The Province’s next steps are to review the submission, consult with partners and make a final decision on the option.
