The Border Infrastructure Program (BIP)


The Border Infrastructure Program (BIP) was a jointly funded federal-provincial initiative to improve the movement of goods and people within the Lower Mainland of British Columbia. The five-year program improved key highway sections linking four Canadian/US border crossings with industrial ports, airports, container facilities, railways and industrial parks. BIP involved three highway project components. These highway improvement projects involved the reconfiguration or addition of interchanges and widening of the highways to accommodate additional lanes. Wakefield Acoustics Ltd.’s services consisted of environmental noise impact assessments, community consultations and detailed highway noise mitigation design. As a result of the noise impact assessment and detailed mitigation design, visually attractive noise barriers that reduce community highway noise exposures were installed at many locations along the BIP project routes .
