Resurfacing to target six on- and off-ramps along busy thoroughfare

Work to improve six interchange ramps along a busy stretch of Highway 99, including four in South Surrey, is to get underway Monday (July 15).

According to a news release, the resurfacing of on- and off-ramps at King George Boulevard, 152 Street, 32 Avenue and 8 Avenue – along with those at Matthews/Ladner Trunk and Highway 91 – is aimed at “making the drive safer and smoother for people along this section of highway in south Surrey.”

“Maintaining the quality of Highway 99 and the access points to a number of road networks in Surrey is important to all travellers, especially those who use these routes every day for work or school,” Surrey-Panorama MLA Jinny Sims, said in the release, on behalf of Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure Claire Trevena.

“This paving project will make a big difference to commercial drivers, local residents and people travelling through the region.”

Detour information for ramp closures is to be posted in advance on changeable message signs.
