The Port of Vancouver says a $17.3 million project aimed at moving cargo in a safer and more efficient manner is complete. The Gateway Avenue grade separation project realigned Gateway and constructed a 3,100-foot bridge over the port's expanding rail network.

"By separating vehicular traffic from the rail traffic below, the project reduces delays and makes it easier for trucks and other vehicles to enter and exit port terminals," the port said in a news release.

The project is part of the port's ongoing $275 million West Vancouver Freight Access program. It is intended to bolster the regional economy by speeding the movement of cargo, attracting new industrial tenants and creating thousands of jobs over many years.
