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.
