This $2.5-billion project, the largest of its kind in British Columbia’s history – with more than 250 team members logging more than 1.1 million hours of work – doubled the capacity of the Port Mann bridge and widened the 37 kilometres of highway from Vancouver to Langley. It transformed this section of the Trans-Canada Highway into an effective regional transportation corridor for transit and commercial vehicles, Metro Vancouver’s 2.2 million residents and the additional 1 million residents expected over the next 30 years. Average commuting time has been reduced by 50%.
