The new 80th Street off-ramp in Delta now is open to traffic, reducing congestion along the Highway 99 corridor and improving local access.
The off-ramp will improve safety and access for motorists and businesses, especially those operating at Boundary Bay Airport and the industrial park. It connects motorists travelling on Highway 99 southbound to Ladner Trunk Road at 80th Street and increases access to areas south of Highway 99.
The second phase of the project, scheduled for completion in fall 2014, includes a lengthened acceleration lane under the Ladner Trunk Road overpass, which will improve safety for motorists merging onto Highway 99 northbound.
Also, Ladner Trunk Road will be widened to four lanes through the Hornby Drive intersection to improve traffic flow and reduce congestion at this busy intersection.
The Government of British Columbia and the Corporation of Delta have each contributed 50% to this $10-million project, which began in early 2013.
Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Todd Stone -
“Government is committed to the safe movement of people and goods throughout B.C. The new off-ramp to 80th Street will allow goods to get to market faster by reducing congestion. I’d like to recognize the Corporation of Delta for working with us on the new 80th Street off-ramp. I’d also like to thank drivers and local businesses for their patience while this project is under construction.”
Delta North MLA Scott Hamilton -
"People using the Boundary Bay Airport and travelling to and from the industrial park will immediately benefit from this off-ramp. This partnership with the Corporation of Delta under Mayor Jackson’s leadership is an example of a positive outcome when governments work together to deliver important projects.”
Corporation of Delta Mayor Lois E. Jackson -
“The new 80th Street off-ramp will provide enhanced access to the burgeoning industrial lands and 900,000 square-foot Dayhu Commercial Centre at Boundary Bay Industrial Park. By working in collaboration with the Province, we are advancing projects that support the improved movement of people and goods while strengthening our local and regional economy.”
- The Government of B.C. has invested $8 million toward the construction of Highway 99/South Fraser Perimeter Interchange project to support public transit and reduce congestion in Delta.
- The project included widening Highway 99 to provide priority access for public transit vehicles travelling through the interchange.
- Since 2001, the B.C. government and its partners have invested more than $12 billion to improve the safety, efficiency and reliability of the highways throughout the province.
