Lynnterm site upgrades and road realignment

The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority is upgrading the property and roadways near the Lynnterm Terminal. Once construction is complete, Dominion Street will be a new two-lane road designed for truck and vehicle traffic with turning lanes and pedestrian sidewalks on both sides.

This work will support future upgrades to the Lynnterm Terminal. Western Stevedoring will be consolidating the Lynnterm breakbulk facilities onto the property between Lynn Creek and Mountain Highway (see map). This will optimize the terminal without requiring any additional land, except nearby property repurposed for terminal use. Lynnterm will continue to be a consolidation centre for forest products, steel and other breakbulk commodities in the Pacific Northwest. It handles wood pulp and paper, lumber, panel products, steel products, project cargo, and machinery.
