Extension of Autoroute 35

This 37.5km long extension is being added from Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu to the Vermont border and is divided into four segments. Segments 1 and 2 are underway, while segments 3 and 4 are still being planned.
The extension began five years ago and was supposed to be completed by 2013.But Quebec Premier Pauline Marois is committed to completing the extension of Autoroute 35 despite provincial budget cuts to transportation. The first section of the extension located south of St. Jean opened in fall 2014, with the final stretch to Vermont slated for completion in 2017.

Port Mann Bridge Improvements

This project involves replacing the frequently used Port Mann Bridge across the Fraser River, widening 37 km of the highway through the eastern suburbs of Vancouver, reconstructing 11 interchanges, constructing or rehabilitating 42 on-shore bridges, and rebuilding the Cape Horn-Lougheed Highway Interchange. The project also includes construction of the new Fraser Heights Connector to link Highway 1 with the recently completed Golden Ears Crossing and South Fraser Perimeter Road.

Construction of the bridge’s final two lanes and connections to highway 1 were expected to finish in 2014, but weather-related difficulties have pushed finishing.

Kicking Horse Canyon Project – Phase 4

This is a long-term project that involves upgrades, and a significant realignment of more than four kilometers of the Trans-Canada Highway through the Kicking Horse Canyon to improve traffic operations, safety, and reduce rock-fall hazards.

Phases 1, 2, and 3 are already complete, and Phase 4 will move ahead once a funding agreement is reached between the provincial and federal governments.
