Sept. 3. 2019, B.C. – Highway 99, between the Steveston Highway and Highway 17 junctions (on either side of the George Massey Tunnel) in B.C., will be resurfaced with new line painting to improve safety along the busy corridor.

To minimize delays for travellers, the majority of work will be done outside of peak traffic periods. Drivers and cyclists are advised to watch for nightly lane closures and obey all traffic-control personnel, construction speed limits and signs.

Construction is expected to begin Tuesday, Sept. 3, 2019, and finish this fall. Work is weather-dependent. For the most up-to-date highway travel information, check @DriveBC on Twitter or visit: DriveBC.ca

B.A. Blacktop Ltd., based out of North Vancouver, has been awarded a contract valued at $3.2 million. This project was announced as part of a $40-million suite of interim safety and reliability improvements being undertaken at the George Massey crossing.
