Highway 17 and River Road interchange opens to traffic
Wednesday, December 1, 2021 10:00 AM
Improved safety, reliability and efficiency are just a few of the benefits drivers can expect when the new Highway 17 and River Road interchange opens to traffic on Friday, Dec. 3, 2021.
The interchange improves the connection between Highway 91 connector, Highway 17 and River Road, and eliminates the need for a rail crossing to access Highway 17. This marks a major milestone for the Highway 91/17 and Deltaport Way upgrade project with the first of four interchanges complete.
Key project benefits include:
- improved travel time and reliability through Delta, reducing congestion;
- enhanced traffic safety for goods movers and the traveling public, decreasing collision risk;
- increased access between South Delta and North Delta/Surrey employment areas and better cycling connections, supporting community development; and
- improved permitting and inspection service for commercial vehicle operators and better operating hours at the Nordel commercial vehicle inspection facility, boosting economic development.
This is a $260-million upgrade project.
Funding partners include the Government of Canada through the National Infrastructure component of the New Building Canada Fund, the Province of British Columbia, the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority and Tsawwassen First Nation.
