Sea to Sky Highway Whistler

 

PROJECT OVERVIEW

As part of Highway 99, the Sea-to-Sky Highway winds its way through the spectacular Coast Mountains, linking communities from West Vancouver to Whistler. British Columbia’s Ministry of Transportation has initiated the Sea-to-Sky Highway Improvement Project to increase this road’s safety, reliability and capacity. In addition to meeting the area’s future traffic needs, the upgrades also enhance economic development opportunities in communities along the highway and in the province as a whole.

During construction, project staff worked hard to ensure the improvements were carried out safely, efficiently and with minimal disruption to the public. These efforts to keep traffic running smoothly continued until the project was completed in 2009, in time for the 2010 Olympic Games.

Some of the many benefits the Sea-to-Sky Highway Improvement Project include:

A straighter highway and improved sightlines, creating more consistent driving speeds and shorter travel times

80 kilometres of new passing lanes between Horseshoe Bay and Whistler

Highly reflective pavement markings along the entire route, making the SeatoSky

Highway easier to navigate, particularly during times of poor visibility

Shoulder and centreline rumble strips and additional median barriers

Safer, more effective intersections

Wider shoulders for improved safety and accommodation for cyclists and disabled vehicles

Better pullouts and opportunities for police enforcement along the highway

Stronger bridges to withstand potential damage from debris when water levels are high

Enhanced monitoring of road conditions by electronic weather stations to improve highway maintenance response during winter weather

6,000 new jobs throughout the province as a result of economic activity generated along the corridor

Provincial GDP increased by $300 million over the period of 2010 to 2025
