About the Presentation:
The Alex Fraser Bridge Improvement Project is the most recent recipient of GVITE’s Bill Curtis Award for an outstanding transportation project.
With upwards of 120,000 vehicles using the Alex Fraser Bridge daily, congestion was a growing problem. Motorists were experiencing excessive delays and queues more than three kilometres long during rush hours. The BC Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure’s Alex Fraser Bridge Improvement Project greatly improved conditions with the addition of a seventh lane, an innovative movable barrier counter-flow system, and 13 new dynamic message signs throughout the Lower Mainland.
The Project has resulted in approximately 20-minutes travel time savings during the southbound PM peak, and approximately 10-minutes travel time savings during the northbound AM peak.
Binnie/MOTI’s innovative design represents the first and only moveable barrier counter-flow system in western Canada.
