safety
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
Reliability
  • Improve the reliability of the highway
  • Currently lack of reliability due to traffic delays and safety issues
capacity
Capacity
  • Improve capacity of the highway to serve increased growth and ease congestion
  • Current lack of capacity reduces safety and hampers goods movement

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
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 b 4 upslope lanes
Option B - 4 Upslope lanes
  • 4 new lanes upslope from the existing Highway 99 corridor
  • Existing Highway 99 serves local traffic
option c northbound tunnel
Option C - Northbound Tunnel
  • 2-lane northbound tunnel
  • Southbound traffic uses the existing Highway 99 route
option d two way two lane tunnel
Option D – Two-way, Two-lane Tunnel
  • One lane northbound and one lane southbound, in tunnel
