Highway 15 Border Infrastructure Program
Focus was retained by the British Columbia Ministry of Transportation to carry out all work associated with improvements for the Highway 15 Border Infrastructure Program.
The Highway 15 corridor serves as a major north‐south route in the Lower Mainland. It provides access to Highways 99 and 91 via 8th Avenue and it connects two provincial east‐west routes, Highway 10 and Highway 1 (TCH), with the U.S. Pacific Highway Border Crossing.
The Pacific Highway Border Crossing lies at the southern terminus of Highway 15. It is the busiest truck crossing in the Lower Mainland and the Province of British Columbia. To reduce delays and improve traffic flow, Highway 15 was enlarged to four lanes. Widening the highway to four lanes provides the capacity and operational efficiency that best satisfies the travel demands and economic viability of the corridor. The work is being constructed in phases. The engineering design budget for this 12 km highway project is over $6.5 million.
