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 replacement 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.

In September of 2017, the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure launched an independant review of the project following the election of the NDP-Green coalition government. The current procurement process for the 10-lane bridge has been cancelled pending the project review.

The two final bidding teams received up to $2 million to offset their costs. The proposed bridge, a smaller bridge, and a replacement tunnel are among the options being considered as part of the review.
