Recommended Design - Key Features

CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

We're recommending a refined version of the West Side Plus option that was shown in Phase 2.

This was the option preferred by the public and a diverse range of stakeholders. Changes and refinements have been made based on feedback.

Key features include:

  • West side main path

    • Wide, accessible sidewalk with room for furniture and special places at key locations
    • Wide two-way bike path with room for passing
    • Protective barrier between the bike path and motor traffic
  • East side sidewalk and Hemlock St ramp improvements

    • Wide, accessible sidewalk
    • Protective barrier between the sidewalk and motor traffic
  • Fir ramp cycling connection

    • Relatively flat two-way cycling connection with 10th Ave bike route
  • Safe, accessible crossings at Howe St, Fir St, Hemlock St, and Seymour St ramps

    • Traffic signals to allow for safe crossing
    • Accessibility ramps to provide access for people using mobility aids
  • Connections to the network at each end

    • At south end – via an improved W 5th Ave linking to Arbutus Greenway
    • At north end – via proposed Drake St upgrades
    • Future-proofed for potential Granville Island elevator and staircase
