Approximately 40 km long, the South Fraser Perimeter Road is a new four-lane, 80 km/hr route along the south side of the Fraser River from Deltaport Way in southwest Delta to 176th Street (Hwy 15) in Surrey, with connections to Highway 1, 15, 91, 99, and TransLink. The route takes a significant step towards improving Metro Vancouver’s major road network. It benefits commuters, the trucking industry and tourists by connecting primary gateway facilities as well as facilitating access to border crossings, the Tsawwassen ferry terminal and the British Columbia Interior.
Our Role in the Project
Our role in the Project included:
- Conducting wildlife and vegetation assessments along the proposed route.
- Emphasis on wildlife and vegetation at Burns Bog and other riparian systems, and specialized sampling programs were directed at wintering birds, Pacific water shrew, and sandhill cranes.
- Coordination and mobilization of salvage programs involving a large workforce for the Pacific water shrew and red-legged frog at eight separate locations along the construction corridor.
