152 Street Road Upgrades
The City is upgrading 152 Street and King George Boulevard to improve transportation and flood resilience in Surrey.
The City plans to raise and widen 152 Street from 3660 152 Street to Serpentine River and make improvements along King George Blvd from Highway 99 to 44 Ave to increase road capacity and improve flood protection for the area.
152 Street and King George Blvd are key transportation corridors linking the communities in North Surrey with South Surrey/White Rock and providing connections to the Canada/U.S. border crossings. As part of TransLink’s Major Road Network, they are both key roads in goods movement, emergency response, and public transit.
Summary of Improvements
Improvements will consist of the following:
Road raising for flood resilience along 152 Street and King George Blvd
4 travel lanes, transit stop improvements and cycling and walking paths along 152 Street
Cycling and walking pathway along King George Boulevard
There may be further minor changes to the design.
What will this project achieve?
The project will provide the following benefits:
Increased flood resilience to the area in case dykes breach in an extreme flood. The upgrades will provide a flood resilient connection between north and south Surrey. This project is part of the first phase of implementation of Surrey's Coastal Flood Adaptation Strategy (CFAS) which ensures our community is resilient, safe, healthy and prepared for coastal flooding and sea level rise.
Increased road capacity with 4 travel lanes from 2 lanes to improve traffic flow and emergency response times.
Multi-modal paths for cyclists and pedestrians, supporting healthy lifestyles and providing more travel options.
The project is currently in design phase.
Construction will occur in phases between 2022 and 2025.
