I am really excited about this! Wait, wait.......... 72nd interchange??????? SFPR interchanges????????
First thing that popped in my mind.
SFPR better be getting those interchanges.... They're highly needed, and while they've paved a bunch out by 176 STreet and stuff, delaying the project by 3 months to have proper interchanges is well worth it.
And, maybe, just maybe the Southern Connector to connect Highway 99 with Highway 1 by Abbotsford. Or, Highway 1 widening out to the Valley, past the Gateway project that ends at 202 Avenue. 700 million goes a LOOOOONG way.
They're already heavily investing along the Roberts Bank corridor with new railway overpasses at 152 Street, 192 Street, and 196 Street in Surrey over the CN Railway south of Highway 10 to make all crossings essentially grade separated.
With regard to road markings, those water based road paints don't work two hoots. Oil based should be used. Safety > Environment in this case.
Although, I must say, two of the suggestions I've given to the MOT have been enacted over the past month. I asked for reflectors on Highway 1 all the way to Hope. Done, and I asked for a border delays sign for drivers coming from the Interior through Chilliwack on Highway 1. Also, Done.
