Project overview l.jpg
Project Overview

  • Improvements are designed to improve safety and reliability

  • By 2009, travel along the corridor will be safer for residents, commuters and tourists

  • Over the longer term, highway improvements will serve population growth, economic development in corridor communities and increasing demand for resident travel, visitor travel and goods movement

Highway improvements l.jpg
Highway Improvements

  • Sea-to-Sky Highway Improvements from Horseshoe Bay to Whistler

    • 4 lanes Horseshoe Bay to Lions Bay

    • 2 lanes Lions Bay to Porteau Cove (3rd lane on rail bed for Olympics)

    • 3 lanes from Porteau Cove to Squamish

    • 4 lanes within urban Squamish

    • 3 lanes from Squamish to Whistler


Goals l.jpg
Goals

  • Safety improvements

  • Reliability improvements

  • Capacity improvements

  • Complete the project 2009

  • Minimize traffic disruption and maximize predictability

  • On time, on budget


Safety l.jpg
Safety

  • Improve the safety of the highway for residents, commuters and visitors

  • Number and severity of accidents is substantially higher than average

  • Safety improvements will result in fewer accidents per year


Reliability l.jpg
Reliability

  • Improve the reliability of the highway

  • Currently lack of reliability due to traffic delays and safety issues


Capacity l.jpg
Capacity

  • Improve capacity of the highway to serve increased growth and ease congestion

  • Current lack of capacity reduces safety and hampers goods movement


Traffic management l.jpg
Traffic Management

  • Efficient traffic management is essential to the success of the project

  • Minimizing delays and maximizing predictability is important to the project schedule, stakeholders and the public

Draft pre design options l.jpg
Draft Pre-Design Options

  • Improvements for the 7 km section of the Sea-to-Sky Highway from east of Eagle Ridge to Sunset Beach are designed to improve safety, reliability and capacity, consistent with the goals for the overall project.

Draft Pre-Design Options

  • Four draft options have been developed for input and feedback from the community. Draft options address project goals and community concerns to varying degrees.


Option a 2 northbound lanes upslope l.jpg
Option A - 2 Northbound lanes upslope

  • 2 northbound lanes use a new route constructed upslope

  • 2 southbound lanes use the existing Highway 99 route


Option a 2 northbound lanes upslope14 l.jpg
Option A - 2 Northbound lanes upslope


Option b 4 upslope lanes l.jpg
Option B - 4 Upslope lanes

  • 4 new lanes upslope from the existing Highway 99 corridor

  • Existing Highway 99 serves local traffic


Option b 4 upslope lanes17 l.jpg
Option B - 4 Upslope lanes


Option c northbound tunnel l.jpg
Option C - Northbound Tunnel

  • 2-lane northbound tunnel

  • Southbound traffic uses the existing Highway 99 route


Option c northbound tunnel20 l.jpg
Option C - Northbound Tunnel


Option d two way two lane tunnel l.jpg
Option D – Two-way, Two-lane Tunnel

  • One lane northbound and one lane southbound, in tunnel

  • Existing Highway 99 serves local traffic


Option d two way two lane tunnel24 l.jpg
Option D – Two-way, Two-lane Tunnel
