Delta roads ‘highway-like’

Construction and bridge traffic have taken their toll in Sunshine Hills.

Re: Toll on the replacement for the  Pattullo Bridge when it is built.

I want to ask the mayor and council of Delta what the municipality is doing to plan for increased traffic on Highway 91, and therefore in North Delta, specifically on streets that are not meant to handle highway traffic such as Lyon Road and Huff Road in Sunshine Hills.

We are fed up with the current highway-like conditions on Lyon Road due to commuter traffic using it as an alternate route to get to Highway 91 and Highway 99.

Ours is a quiet residential area, but it feels like a highway on weekdays. We are worried about the impact of construction and tolling on Highway 99 and the new Pattullo on our neighbourhood. Is there anything being planned, or will Delta wait and let the traffic problem get out of control, such as what happened with Annacis Island?
