Construction begins on Highway 1 widening in Langley, drivers warned of lane closures

Work to begin Tuesday, Sept. 7

Beginning next week, those moving through Langley on the Trans-Canada Highway can expect more than the typical commuter delays drivers have become accustomed to in the area.

On Tuesday (Sept. 7), crews will begin construction work in preparation for the Highway 1 widening project from 216th to 264th streets. Overnight lane closures will be in effect in the area between 8:30 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. Monday to Friday, and 8:30 p.m. to 8 a.m. on weekends until summer 2022.

Drivers are reminded to follow the direction of signage and flag persons, as well as obey construction zone speed limits.
