You've posted about 10 times in this thread and EVERY SINGLE ONE has been off-topic. Just post in the correct places already. People check this thread for north shore Hwy 1 news and discussion.

This was all forest a few months ago. Sucks to be that home owner on the left.

I have to say I'm slightly confused as to the purpose/benefit of having the extra long collector roads, with bridges over Lynn Creek. They seem to add a lot of cost for little benefit. Maybe there's something I'm missing?

Yep, it is currently very difficult to go east-west across the north shore without getting into the near-permanent traffic jam at the bridge bottleneck. The new interchange will change that, and also allow a longer stretch of fast movement for those of us around central-lower Lonsdale.

It won't be a life changer for those going across the north shore on the highway, except for getting local traffic removed.

Stumbled upon this recent interesting tidbit from AE Engineering re: the new Mountain Highway interchange, Hwy 1, etc.:

Quote:
Design Manager, Ron Gratz, tells us, “One of our challenges was to develop a design which accommodates future widening of Highway 1, an eastbound on-ramp, and other traffic movements, which will be implemented in subsequent phases of the Lower Lynn interchange improvements.”

To determine the future requirements, a future/ultimate interchange geometric and laning design concept was developed based on high-level conceptual options provided by the Ministry. The new five-lane Mountain Highway Underpass includes provisions to accommodate the addition of a future southbound to eastbound left-turn lane and future six-laning of Highway 1.

Thanks for that... relieved it'll still be possible, but it should be done now. Even just this summer traffic has been noticeably worse than it was previously. Summer's supposed to be better for traffic usually.
