We held two open houses on January 21 and 23 for you to learn about the recommended designs, ask questions, and give your feedback. We also conducted an online questionnaire from January 20 to February 8 to hear what you thought about the recommended designs. Thank you to people who participated. We're now analyzing the feedback we received and will provide updates on the project in the coming months.
Open house information displays:
We completed improvements to the intersection.
We held a public open house to share the recommended design for the intersection of Renfrew and Adanac Streets. The recommended design includes:
We built the improvements after informing local stakeholders.
We met with stakeholders and businesses to develop an inclusive consultation process to discuss the potential transportation changes on Union Street from Main Street to Princess Avenue. We considered traffic calming measures to restrict the number of cars and trucks on Union Street. We reported back to Council with an update on consultation efforts.
City Council approved the recommended design on June 12 after hearing from the public. The recommended design includes:
City Council directed staff to postpone consideration of the eastbound barrier at Gore Avenue and Union Street pending further consultation.
We refined the design based on data, policy, public feedback, technical and financial considerations. We recommended building the design with temporary materials to minimize project costs, since removing the Georgia and Dunsmuir viaducts was uncertain.
We presented the design to the public, stakeholders, and businesses at two open houses, and asked for your feedback in an online questionnaire.
We collected data, reviewed the road network, and met with Vancouver Fire and Rescue, BC Hydro, Translink, BC Trucking Association, and businesses along the route. We then developed a design that aligns to project goals and City policies, and balances technical and financial considerations.
