10th Avenue: Segment 1, Arbutus Link (Trafalgar to Burrard)

We want to make 10th Avenue, between Trafalgar St and Burrard St, safer and more comfortable for people of all ages and abilities to walk and cycle. We also want to improve neighbourhood livability and access to schools, the Arbutus Greenway, and businesses and other organizations on 10th Ave.

10th Avenue, between Tralfalgar St and Burrard St, has several school pick-up and drop-off areas and a cluster of businesses at Arbutus St. It also intersects the Arbutus Greenway and is near the future Broadway Subway rapid transit station at West Broadway and Arbutus St.

Improvements to this segment will be coordinated with construction of the Broadway Subway, currently planned for 2020, and will likely involve the temporary rerouting of the Arbutus Greenway.
