The Burrard Bridge bike lane trial starts next week however traffic flow will be affected starting today. Crews will be working on Pacific Street and either side of Burrard Street all through this week. Re-paving will happen on the weekend and crews will also be on the bridge itself before next Monday.
Starting July 13th there will be new lane markings, signals and protective barriers for a bike lane on Pacific Street and on the Burrard Bridge southbound into Kitsilano. Check out the mocked-up photo below which is courtesy of the City of Vancouver.
The trial is set to last three months and the City of Vancouver is encouraging Kitsilano drivers to use the Granville and Cambie Street bridges.
Traffic to and from the downtown core is light over the summer months, so the true test of the bike lane trial will come in September when school is back in session and everyone is back to work.
