Repairs to flood-damaged section of Highway 11 in Abbotsford complete

REPAIRS to the northbound lanes of Highway 11 between Hazelwood Avenue and Clayburn Road are now complete and the highway will reopen to four lanes on Wednesday, March 2.

With these repairs, Highway 11 will be restored to four lanes from the U.S. border north to Mission and Highway 7, improving community access and the movement of people and goods between Abbotsford and Mission.

This section of Highway 11 was completely closed on November 15, 2021, after being damaged by flooding. Two lanes of the highway were reopened to passenger vehicle traffic on December 6, and to commercial vehicles on December 10.

November’s atmospheric river affected highways across southern British Columbia. Following the floods and washouts, the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure and its contractors worked quickly to restore connections between communities and move people and goods through the Fraser Valley on Highway 1 and Highway 7, along the Coquihalla (Highway 5), on Highway 1 through the Fraser Canyon, and on sections of Highway 8.

The current repairs to Highway 11 between Hazelwood and Clayburn are temporary and the ministry is working on plans for permanent repairs to this section. More information will be available as the design progresses.
