In January 2017, the Province announced a $70 Million investment in the Alex Fraser Bridge for capacity improvements, including the addition of a new counter flow lane. This project is now underway and also includes a $5 million cable collar upgrade for snow and ice management.
The new traffic signals on Nordel Way at the Highway 91 on-ramp are now operational effective June 20, 2018. The signals and the extension of the two-lane northbound on-ramp to the bridge where part of the first phase of the Alex Fraser Bridge Capacity Improvement Project. These improvements will make it easier for motorists to access the Alex Fraser Bridge by alternating the merge between traffic entering from both directions.
The Province appointed Eurovia B.C. to undertake Phase 1 of the improvements. To help reduce traffic congestion, construction along the Alex Fraser Bridge will take place at night. Noise concerns will be managed by Eurovia B.C. and Provincial staff.
