In Vancouver and Burnaby, the Port Mann/Highway 1 Improvement Project includes highway widening between McGill Street (Cassiar Tunnel) in Vancouver and the Brunette Interchange in Coquitlam. This section of the project also includes new HOV ramps at Grandview Highway, rehabilitation and improvements to eight interchanges, construction of new transit-only ramps to access Lougheed Town Centre Station (SkyTrain) and environmental enhancements along the corridor.
Phase One of the PMH1 Project was completed on December 1, 2012 and included the partial opening of new interchanges at Willingdon Avenue and Sprott Street. With these improvements complete, drivers travelling between Langley and Vancouver have already eliminated 35 minutes from their overall trip.
Phase Two includes continuing construction to complete the Port Mann Bridge to 10 lanes and a focus on time-saving highway and interchange improvements through Coquitlam, Burnaby and Vancouver.
The following construction activity is scheduled for Burnaby and Vancouver in 2014:
- ExpressBus service connects Cavolth Exchange, Langley to Lougheed Town Centre, Burnaby, in less than 25 minutes
- Complete construction of new Cariboo Road Overpass and dismantling of old overpass
- Complete construction of Sprott Street and Kensington Avenue Interchanges
- Complete final finishing work along Highway 1 through Coquitlam and Burnaby including top lift paving, drainage and median work
