Adanac overpass

Adanac Overpass

The Adanac Overpass is frequently used by non-local drivers, particularly during weekday peak commute times, to bypass traffic on nearby arterial streets.

In response to safety concerns from residents, we hosted a transportation Listen and Learn session in May 2017.

We worked with residents to gather and map information about transportation issues in the neighbourhood.

What's happening

Monitoring complete

We have completed monitoring of the Adanac Overpass during the temporary closure and vehicle restrictions will soon be removed.

In coordination with this change, the Rupert St southbound connection will revert to transit vehicles only.

Upcoming consultation

In fall 2019, we'll be reaching out to the community to consult on a few options that can best mitigate traffic volume and speeding in the neighbourhood.
