Road, Cycling, and Pedestrian Improvements in the Township

With contributions from TransLink’s Municipal Funding Program (MFP), the Township of Langley will upgrade multi-use pathways, cycling paths, and pedestrian infrastructure throughout the municipality. This year, four capital projects have received MFP funding, in addition to allocated funding through the municipal budget.

96 Avenue Connector

The 96 Avenue Connector will construct a multi-use pathway on 96 Avenue from Telegraph Trail to 201 Street. This pathway will further link to the existing multi-use pathway on Golden Ears Way in Surrey via existing bike lanes on Telegraph Trail. The completion of both the 201 Street Connector and the 96 Avenue Connector will provide cycling connections to the Golden Ears Bridge, Trans-Canada Trail, Derby Reach Regional Park, Fort Langley, and Surrey, suitable for all ages and abilities. This project is anticipated to commence in 2022.

The 2021 MFP contribution from TransLink for this project is $469,000. Previous investments from TransLink include funding from the Bicycle Infrastructure Capital Cost Share program.

96 Avenue Sidewalk (Phase 2)

The second phase of the 96 Avenue Sidewalk project will create new sidewalks on both sides of 96 Avenue between Trattle Street and Edal Street, connecting existing sidewalks constructed during the first phase of the project. The sidewalks will provide safe pedestrian infrastructure to a busy commercial area in Fort Langley. This project is currently under construction.

The 2021 MFP contribution from TransLink for this project is $169,000; as well as previous funding through TransLink’s Walking Infrastructure to Transit program.

Fraser Highway Widening and Intersection Improvements (24600 – 25000 Block)

This project will help alleviate traffic congestion, improve the intersection of 248 Street and Fraser Highway, and create a separated multi-use pathway that will be safer for pedestrians and cyclists. This project is tentatively scheduled to commence in fall 2021.

The 2021 MFP contribution from TransLink for this project is $2,345,650. This is the fourth year of funding from TransLink.

Pedestrian Bridge at 56 Avenue and 216 Street

The pedestrian bridge at the southwest corner of 56 Avenue and 216 Street will undergo several upgrades, including:

  • Lifting the bridge off the existing supports and having the walking surface re-decked
  • Replacing the bridge supports and anchoring them in the sides of the ditch slope
  • Rebuilding the approaches to the crossing and resetting bridge onto supports.

This project is scheduled to commence the week of August 23. The 2021 MFP contribution from TransLink for this project is $13,250.
