New DDI at BC-11! Most of the Abbotsford bottlenecks eliminated too.

Very impressive plan, and very sorely needed. The backups west from Abbotsford into Vancouver are biblical.

I appreciate that this isn't a small-time plan; from 4, up to 8 lanes, plus 99-style bus-running in the shoulder. And massive interchange rebuilds too.

The DDI is pretty cool, I think that's a smart location for one as well. But I gotta say, that 264 St interchange is mighty impressive too. That whole interchange has needed rebuilding for a long time, the on-ramp merges are crazy dangerous (no merge area at all), plus the overpass is strangling Hwy 1.

As a side-note, I find having both an HOV and bus lane on the same carriageway to be highly unusual.

--- Quote ---Rogers Pass is between Revelstoke and Golden, B.C., where the Trans-Canada Highway and the Canadian Pacific Railway snake through the Selkirk Mountains.

At roughly 1,300 metres above sea level, Rogers Pass receives on average 10 metres of snowfall each winter, with more than 130 active avalanche paths criss-crossing a 40-kilometre stretch of the busy highway.

Since 1961, the year before the Trans-Canada Highway fully opened, Parks Canada and the Canadian Armed Forces have worked together to run the world's largest mobile artillery avalanche control program and Canada's longest-running domestic military operation.

Interesting story about avalanche control in Glacier National Park between Revelstoke and Golden.
