They could eliminate the ferries to Galiano & Saltspring.

Would be an extra 32ish kilometers driving, but the ferry distance would be cut in half (~45min crossings).
Because a bridge to Galiano from Tsawwassen would be the enormously expensive and structurally challenging part of the whole project and is the reason it's not being actively pursued. If we were able to build a bridge to Galiano, a bridge all the way to Vancouver Island would be a given as it would be the easy part.
