HOV lanes on Highway 1 will be open to all traffic on the weekends starting this Friday as construction on the freeway widening project intensifies.

Port Mann/Highway 1 Improvement Project crews need to start closing lanes during the day on weekends and opening up the HOV lanes is expected to minimize delays by keeping at least two lanes open each way at all times.

The rule change allowing unlimited use of HOV lanes between Grandview Highway and the Port Mann Bridge will be in effect from 7 p.m. Fridays through 6 a.m.  Mondays, starting this Friday.

Normal HOV lane restrictions requiring a minimum two occupants remain in effect during weekdays from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.

When the new Port Mann Bridge opens, HOV lanes will extend east as far as 200 Street in Langley and will return to their normal 24-hour schedule.
