Province and municipality team up for upgrades
The Government of British Columbia and the Corporation of Delta are partnering on a $7 million project of road upgrades along the Highway 99 corridor.
A new 80th Street off-ramp will be constructed to connect motorists travelling on Highway 99 southbound to Ladner Trunk Road at 80th Street.
The new off-ramp to 80th Street will increase access to areas south of Highway 99.
Improvements to the acceleration lane will take place at the Matthews Interchange, and the intersections of Ladner Trunk Road and Hornby Drive and Ladner Trunk Road and 96th Street will also be widened to four lanes to improve traffic flow and reduce congestion.
Engineering and design work is currently underway.
Construction is expected to begin in early 2013 and finish by spring 2014.
