Multi-Use Overpass on Highway 17 at 52 St

Nov 06, 2015

We listened to our community and reviewed the impacts of the Highway 17 widening project and the higher traffic volumes that are projected to come with the new Tsawwassen Mills and Tsawwassen Commons malls.

To ensure safety and accessibility for our residents of all abilities, Delta staff have identified the need for a multi-use overpass for pedestrians and cyclists at the intersection of Highway 17 at 52 Street.

Mayor Lois E. Jackson and Delta's CAO George V. Harvie travelled to Victoria to meet with The Honourable Todd Stone, Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure, to express their concerns regarding this issue.

Minister Stone acknowledged Delta's concerns and has directed his staff to review safety needs at the intersection of Highway 17 at 52 Street.

Please see the video presented to Minister Stone that outlines Delta's concerns and the need for this infrastructure:
