192nd Street Rail Overpass Project (Surrey, City of Langley)
192nd Street is presently a two-lane road serving approximately 14,000 vehicles per day. With expected population growth, traffic is forecast to grow to over 30,000 vehicles per day by 2021. In anticipation of this growth, this project will provide substantial relief during rail events. The combination of the 192nd Street overpass with the 196th Street overpass and an east-west connector on 54th Avenue is expected to provide substantial traffic relief in the area. These three projects are collectively known as the "Combo Project."
This project may be complemented by a Rail Crossing Information System, which would notify drivers traveling on nearby routes of an incoming train, and enable them to re-route to the new overpass.
Construction of the 196th Street, 192nd Street and 54th Avenue Rail Overpass Projects is expected to get underway in early 2012, and to be complete by December 2013.
