The Deltaport Truck Staging Facility, which opened for operations in the summer of 2020, is located at the intersection of Highway 17, Highway 17A, and Deltaport Way in Delta. The facility improves road safety along Deltaport Way and nearby roadways by reducing port-destined truck queues along Deltaport Way and the Roberts Bank causeway. As a result, there is less engine idling and traffic congestion.
Before these improvements, trucks making their way to the Port of Vancouver’s Deltaport had to line up along the causeway when arriving early for reservations or during a closure of the terminal.
The new facility has the capacity to accommodate up to 140 trucks, including early arrivals. The facility includes a secure vehicle access gate requiring a valid Port Pass, a commercial vehicle safety and enforcement area for truck safety inspections, a new highway exit ramp to facilitate access from Highway 17, and an additional road exit to allow traffic access onto Deltaport Way.
The Deltaport truck staging facility is part of the Deltaport Terminal, Road and Rail Improvements Project—a series of improvements that increases the capacity for containers in and out of Roberts Bank from 600,000 to 2.4 million 20-foot-equivalent unit (TEU) containers per year.
Construction is complete and the facility is in operation.
