The overpass is open!
In March 2014, the 232nd Street Overpass opened for use, with final construction work and decommissioning of the temporary detour road completed in April 2014. The new overpass replaces the street-level crossing at the rail tracks, eliminating rail-related delays for the travelling public, improving rail efficiency and safety, for everyone.

About the project
232nd Street connects communities north of Highway 1, including the eastern section of Walnut Grove and Fort Langley, with the rest of Langley.
As part of the Roberts Bank Rail Corridor Program, the 232nd Street Overpass Project constructed a two-lane overpass replacing the street-level crossing of the rail tracks between 75th Avenue and 76A Avenue, eliminating delays for drivers, cyclists and pedestrians, and allowing for the possible future westward extension of the Rawlison rail siding.
Funding partners include Port Metro Vancouver, Transport Canada and Canadian Pacific Rail.
