Fraser Valley Variable Speed Limit System
Location of Project: Abbotsford, B.C., Chilliwack, B.C. and Hope, B.C.
MRC Total Build was engaged by the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure to complete the installation of Fraser Valley Variable Speed Limit System installation. The Speed Limit System is installed in two locations: a 24-kilometre section of Highway 1 between Sumas River Bridge in Abbotsford, BC and Prest Road in Chilliwack, BC; and a 7-kilometre section Highway 3/5 in Hope, BC. The system is used to detect increased vehicle traffic and adjust speed limit to manage congestion, as well as adjust the speed limit to meet weather conditions. The system is designed to reduce accidents and better manage traffic flows.
