As the city considers new road alignment options to connect King Road at Bradner Road

As the city considers new road alignment options to connect King Road at Bradner Road, and Mt. Lehman at Marshall, a public information meeting will be held April 14.

This road link is intended to provide an important transportation connection between Abbotsford and Langley/Surrey through the 16th Avenue corridor and will reduce traffic volume on Fraser Highway and 8th Avenue.

According to the city, traffic forecasts indicate that a two-lane road cross-section will be sufficient for about 15 years, with the ability to eventually widen the road to a four-lane cross-section when warranted by traffic volumes, which is expected in 2031 and beyond.

The public consultation meeting will be held from 6 to 8 p.m., in the library of King Traditional Elementary School (28776 King Rd). The drop-in meeting will allow attendees to view display boards, provide input and discuss the options with city staff.
