Making streets for people

We are making temporary changes to our streets to help residents physically distance and mitigate the risk of COVID-19 to our communities by:

  • Room to Move. Repurposing street space for more walking, rolling, and cycling along Beach Ave.
  • Pop-up Plazas. Creating pop-up plazas so people can gather outside
  • Temporary Patios. Approving temporary patios so people can dine out and businesses can continue to serve customers
  • Sidewalk Widening. Making more room for walking and queuing along busy streets
  • Room to Queue. Making more room to line up and board buses at some key bus stops
  • Slow Streets. Calming traffic to make ‘slow streets’ more comfortable for people walking, rolling, and cycling

These measures also support our ongoing effort to create safer streets, limit the effects of climate change, and increase social connection between residents. We are monitoring the impacts of these initiatives and getting feedback from the public to understand what could become longer term.

Fill out the survey and share your ideas to help us make streets for people during COVID-19 recovery.

    Beach Avenue Temporary Path Survey

    Given the significant number of users, the recent increases in active COVID-19 cases in Vancouver, staff are exploring modifications to Beach Ave to reduce the maintenance effort and improve access by walking, cycling, and transit.

    We are receiving feedback from September 24 to October 12, 2020.
