In 1984, construction of the first phase of the Coquihalla Highway began.
The first phase, which was completed in time for Expo 86', was done in just 20 months. A project of this scale had never been done before in such a short time in North America.
Over five million cubic metres of rock was blasted, enough to fill BC Place 2 ½ times. During this phase of construction, one of the biggest single blasts in the ministry's history was recorded.
