What's happeningUpgrades to the greenway
The Central Valley Greenway (CVG) between Clark Drive and John Hendry Park has been identified for improvements to provide a safer and more comfortable cycling connection between the area’s local and regional destinations (e.g. Commercial Drive, John Hendry Park, and Commercial Broadway SkyTrain Station).
The proposed upgrades would impact the following streets:
- Grandview Highway North (between Clark Drive and Lakewood Drive)
- Woodland overpass
- E 8th Ave (between Grandview Highway North and Lakewood Drive)
- Lakewood Drive (between E 8th Ave and John Hendry Park)
The proposed upgrades will include the addition of a new protected bike path as well as a rerouted bike path to increase cyclist safety and comfort. Some changes to motor vehicle circulation and on-street parking will be also be taking place along the project route.
Construction will begin in the fall of 2021.
