There are six interchanges on Highway 1 (see McCallum Road Cameras) in its 33 km (21 mi) long stretch through Abbotsford, one of which leads to Highway 11.

Highway 1 takes the exit off the freeway at this point. (The freeway alignments of Highways 3 and 5 continue from this exit, Exit 170, and continue unbroken until it meets up again with Highway 1 just west of Kamloops at Exit 362.)
