Phase One of the Port Mann/Highway 1 Improvement Project was completed on December 1, 2012, which marked the completion of major improvements east of the bridge to Langley. Additional eastbound and westbound highway lanes have been added from the Port Mann Bridge to 202 Street in Langley, including one HOV lane in each direction.
The brand new Carvolth Transit Exchange and Park & Ride located on 86 Avenue also opened on December 1, 2012 acting as the eastern hub of TransLink’s new ExpressBus service, the first reliable transit over the Port Mann Bridge in a generation. It connects directly to new Highway 1 HOV lanes through dedicated transit/HOV-only ramps at the new 202 Street Interchange.
With these improvements complete, drivers travelling between Langley and Vancouver have already eliminated 35 minutes from their overall trip.
