    About time on Fraser Highway though I’ll be disappointed if it is only 138th to 96th. That still leaves the 96th to 148th stretch 1 lane and that would result in really no change in my humble opinion.

    The changes to City Parkway though and 103rd are more important to the core though I think and will be great to see complete.

  2. its about time the line up city park way.

    also its nice to see whalley blvd finally getting a few more steps towards being finish. all that will be left is to line it up on the one side with university drive
