Cleveland Avenue and Highway 99 intersection upgrades set to begin

The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure is moving forward this month with upgrades to the intersection of Cleveland Avenue and Highway 99 after awarding the road’s construction contract to Capilano Highway Services Company earlier this year. The upgrades are welcomed by the District after a long process to seek commitment from the Province to improve the intersection, which holds the highest rank of crashes in Squamish according to ICBC Crash Data.

“This has long been a challenging intersection and we are very pleased to see this commitment from the Province,” says District of Squamish Mayor Karen Elliott. “These much-needed improvements will address safety concerns and traffic-flow issues at this intersection, and we appreciate the investment that is being made to allow for a safer exit onto Highway 99.” 

Traffic Impacts 

Construction is expected to begin June 6 and will involve widening Highway 99 to accommodate a new southbound acceleration lane from Cleveland Avenue entering the highway. Impacts on traffic flow are expected during construction.  

The estimated completion date for construction is July 15, 2022. Residents will need to plan ahead to allow for extra time when coming to and from the downtown area of Squamish.  

This is a Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure project. The District will share updates through District channels as updates are received from the Province.

    Should have put in a roundabout. These slow traffic but keep traffic flowing. Fatal accidents almost non existent. Dinosaur attitude on the part of MOH.
