Over 500,000 people cycle on 10th Ave every year, making it one of the busiest east-west bikeways in the Vancouver’s cycling network.
We're now working to improve the corridor by making it more convenient, safe, and comfortable for people of all ages and abilities (AAA) to walk and cycle.
The 10th Ave local street bikeway extends from Trafalgar St to Victoria Dr, linking many key destinations such as Vancouver General Hospital (VGH) and Commercial Dr. It also intersects some busy north-south cycling routes, like the Ontario Bikeway.
This project aims to:
- Make the street comfortable, safe, and accessible for all people
- Improve safety for everyone, especially for vulnerable road users and at busy intersections
- Accommodate the loading and access needs of adjacent businesses and institutions
- Consider impacts to transit, traffic flow, and neighborhood livability
Segment 3: Hospital Zone (Alder to Cambie)
Phase 1 (Oak St to Willow St)
The 10th Ave Evaluation Commitee, formed in 2018 to collaborate with City staff to review the performance of the phase 1 street improvements, has now concluded.
Phase 2 construction (Willow St to Cambie St)
A consultant is in the process of developing the final details of design based on the concept approved by Council in May 17, 2017. The learnings from the collaboration with the 10th Ave Evaluation Committee on phase 1 will inform the design for phase 2. The detailed design is expected to be complete in winter 2019, and an external contractor will be retained in 2020.
Staff will continue to work with local stakeholders to minimize traffic impacts for patients and health services during construction.
Spanning 7.2km from Trafalgar St to Victoria Dr, the 10th Ave Corridor Project is divided into seven segments.
Segment 1 – Arbutus Link (Trafalgar St to Burrard St)
Segment 2 – Granville (Burrard St to Alder St)
Segment 3 – Hospital Zone (Alder St to Cambie St)
Segment 4 – City Hall (Cambie St to Quebec St)
Segment 5 – Kingsway (Quebec St to Guelph St)
Segment 6 – Fraser St (Guelph St to Woodland St)
Segment 7 – Commercial Dr (Woodland St to Victoria St)
Together with the Province, we're advancing the design and construction of the Broadway Subway, a tunneled extension of the subway.
When complete, the Arbutus Greenway will enable you to walk or cycle continuously from Marpole in South Vancouver to False Creek.
We're creating bike routes on West 14th Ave and Alder St as part of improving the 10th Ave Corridor around the Hospital Zone.
