Granville Bridge Options Released

Vancouver’s Granville Street Bridge is set to get a significant facelift and
six design options have been released by the city.

The city says the eight-lane bridge is underused. The redesign would convert
some traffic lanes to cycling and walking lanes on the major artery into the
Vancouver’s downtown core.

After releasing possible designs, the public is now being asked to weigh in
as part of the second phase of engagement in the bridge’s upgrades.

So far, nearly $35 million worth of maintenance and repairs on the
65-year-old bridge have been underway for almost a year.

Feedback must be given to the city by the end of the month. Open houses are
scheduled for Sept. 13, 14 and 17 and workshops will be held from Sept. 19
to 21. Public input will also be accepted through an online survey set to
open on Sept. 13.
