The South Fraser Perimeter Road Project (SFPR) is a new four-lane highway that spans across approximately 38 kilometers of the Lower Mainland Area south of metropolitan Vancouver along the south side of the Fraser River from the existing Highway 17 at Deltaport Way in south Delta to 176th Street (Highway 15) in Surrey.
The primary purpose of the Project was to improve mobility and efficiency within the overall Metro Vancouver roadway network and relieve congestion on local community roadways. The BC Transportation Financing Authority has a Concession Agreement with the FTG Fraser Transportation Group Partnership (FTGP) to Design, Construct and Operate the South Fraser Perimeter Road Project for the Concession Period. FTGP has a Design Build agreement with Fraser Transportation Group Constructors (FTGC) for the Design and Construction of the SFPR. The Project is a combination of both new and reconstructed alignments using mostly asphalt pavements with approximately 20 concrete structures, cycling and transit improvements, utility relocation and installation, retaining walls, and a variety of structural foundation work and grading. Ecological improvements include several wildlife crossings, preservation and restoration activities, and a variety of stormwater management facilities throughout the facility.
