The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority is leading a project to improve the roads accessing Lynnterm Terminal in North Vancouver.
The work begins in February and will continue to July 2021.
The Mountain Highway Underpass Project will deepen the existing underpass under the rail tracks, which will allow the road to accommodate oversized cargo, such as heavy machinery.
The project will increase import and export capacity and trade opportunities at Lynnterm Terminal, while also improving pedestrian access and safety by adding a sidewalk.
The project includes:
Realignment of approximately 250 metres of Dominion Street to enable the expansion of the Lynnterm Terminal
Improvements to the road and sidewalk to enhance pedestrian, cyclist, and vehicle access to properties in the area, including a major waterfront park (completed)
Lowering of the northbound lane of Mountain Highway by approximately one metre to provide space for oversized cargo to pass under the existing CN rail bridge
Building a new two metre wide sidewalk on the west side of Mountain Highway, between Dominion Street and Bay Street, leading into Lynnterm Terminal’s east gate
A new sidewalk on the west side of Mountain Highway between Dominion Street and Bay Street will also be built in this project.
Improved public safety, better emergency response for first responders to get to incidents faster, reduced congestion are some benefits of the project, according to Port Vancouver.
