Cycling Connection Improvement-Arbutus Greenway and Seaside Greenway

A message from the Bike Upgrades Team , Engineering Services, City of Vancouver:

The City of Vancouver is working to improve cycling connections between the Arbutus Greenway and the Seaside Greenway. As two of Vancouver’s most popular bike routes, located near each other but not connected, this is a significant gap in the City’s active transportation network.

The Pine St and W 1st Ave Link intends to address that gap.

A series of on-street changes are proposed for Pine St between W 6th Ave and W 1st Ave, and on W 1st Ave from Pine St to Creekside Dr. Our aim is to make a connection that is safe and comfortable for all ages and abilities (AAA) while accommodating access and loading arrangements for nearby businesses and residents. Implementation is anticipated to occur in summer 2022 using interim materials.
