The City has completed the new Nicomekl River crossing and other improvements along King George Boulevard.

Project Description

The City worked with the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure (MoTI) to replace the aging single-lane Bailey Bridge and the two-lane timber trestle bridge on King George Boulevard.

The existing bridge structures were in dire need of replacement. The new crossing is earthquake and flood resilient with four vehicle lanes and multiuse paths for walking and cycling.  

We made other improvements along King George Boulevard to increase safety, connectivity and traffic flow for this critical corridor which connects Surrey’s communities to each other and the region.

Summary of Improvements

The King George Boulevard corridor improvements from the Park and Ride intersection to Crescent road include:

  • a new Nicomekl River crossing with increased capacity from three to four vehicle lanes (two travel lanes in each direction) to improve traffic flow and emergency response times
  • multiuse paths to make walking and cycling safer and support sustainable travel options
  • improved seismic and coastal flooding resiliency 
  • walking trail for pedestrian access to the Nicomekl Riverfront Park
  • a new connector road from King George Boulevard to Nicomekl Road 
  • additional north and south bound lanes at Park and Ride intersection 
  • improvement to Highway 99 south ramp to King George Boulevard.
