Eight months after construction was supposed to end, the Cleveland Avenue and Highway 99 intersection upgrades by the provincial government are finally complete.
The new southbound acceleration lane from Cleveland Avenue entering the highway is now open.
Construction began in June 2022. The improvements are meant to make the crash-prone intersection safer.
According to the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, initial delays were because the contractor faced challenges in securing resources, including the availability of products and sub-contractors. More recent delays were so the lane's opening would coincide with signal changes and the lowering of the speed limit from 70 km/h to 60 km/h, MOTI said in February.
