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 upgrades impact the following streets:
- Grandview Highway North (between McLean Drive and Lakewood Drive)
- Woodland overpass
- E 8th Ave (between Grandview Highway North and Lakewood Drive)
- Lakewood Drive (between E 12th Ave and John Hendry Park)
The 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 will also be taking place along the project route.
Construction is expected to begin in December 2021.
The City welcomed comments on the upgrades during a period of public consultation from September 28 to October 18, 2021. Additional comments were received after this period which also influenced the final design.
A summary of the final design is described in the implementation notification letter:
