20 Avenue Improvements and Highway 99 Overpass
The City plans to make improvements along 20 Avenue to increase community connectivity, traffic movement, and safety for pedestrians and cyclists in South Surrey.
We also plan to build an overpass over Highway 99 to link communities and increase access to jobs, businesses, shopping, community centres, health services and schools.

Frequently Asked Question:
Will the 20 Avenue Highway 99 Overpass have access to Highway 99?
The 20 Avenue Highway 99 Overpass is intended to improve local east/west connectivity in South Surrey. Currently, there are limited travel access points between Semiahmoo and Grandview Heights which causes pressure on 16 Avenue, 24 Avenue and 32 Avenue. The 20 Avenue Overpass will provide a much-needed additional option for South Surrey residents to travel between communities.
New access to Highway 99 is the responsibility of the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure (MOTI) as Highway 99 is a provincial highway. The City has set aside capital costs to build new and improved accesses at 24 Avenue and 152 Street in the City’s 10 Year Servicing Plan. The City continues to push MOTI for improvements at 24 Avenue and 152 Street. At the March 27, 2023 Council meeting, staff recommended the Mayor send a letter to MOTI requesting that new and upgraded Highway 99 interchanges at 24 Avenue and 152 Street be funded as part of the Fraser River Tunnel Project.
There have been no commitments made by MOTI to date to build these new accesses. Residents can email email@example.com to request improved access to Highway 99 for South Surrey residents.
