Highway 13 is an 11.5 km (7.1 mi) long two-lane route through the eastern part of Langley, British Columbia. Highway 13 essentially serves the function of quick access from Washington state to the central Fraser Valley, and vice versa. Highway 13 first opened in 1958 between the Canada–United States border and the present day Fraser Highway (former Highway 1A), and was extended north to the present day Trans-Canada Highway (Highway 1) in 1968.
