Welcome to the George Massey Crossing engagement website.
The Massey Crossing is now in the solution development phase. The ministry is working closely with the newly-formed Metro Vancouver Mayors’ Task Force, Indigenous groups, TransLink, local municipalities and other stakeholders to develop and evaluate crossing options. Options will be based on consultation as well as the results of the Independent Technical Review released in December 2018. The target completion for this phase of work is the end of November 2019.
Between January and April 2019, our work focused on developing consensus on Principles, Goals and Objectives for the project. This phase is now complete.
A preliminary Long-List of Options has also been developed as a result of engagement to date and an Evaluation Framework that reflects the principles, goals and objectives, to assist in assessing options and selecting a preferred option. A technical engineering services contract has been awarded to COWI North America to provide support.
Public consultation is tentatively scheduled to take place in fall 2019.
Additionally, work is underway on immediate safety and reliability improvements to the tunnel and the adjacent approaches and interchanges on either side.
