The current George Massey Tunnel carries more than 80,000 vehicles per day and is a key component of the regional and provincial transportation system. The project will replace the tunnel with a new long-span bridge and upgrade the adjacent highway corridor.
With a consensus that area residents want a new bridge on the existing Highway 99 corridor, the next step in the project is to prepare a more detailed project scope and business case. All potential financing options are on the table until the scope of the project is confirmed. Subject to environmental review, construction is expected to begin in 2017. Design refinements and consultation are in progress. The estimated date of completion is 2022.
