The proposed Point Grey Road – Cornwall Avenue Corridor Project will link downtown Vancouver to Kitsilano and Point Grey providing a safe and convenient connection between the Burrard Bridge and Jericho Beach for pedestrians and cyclists.
The goals of the project are to:
- Encourage people of all ages and abilities to get around their city through active transportation (any mode of human-powered transportation, including jogging/running, inline skating, skateboarding, wheelchairs, strollers, etc.) in a comfortable, convenient, and enjoyable way.
- Address existing safety issues along Point Grey Road and Cornwall Avenue by reducing the volume and speed of vehicle traffic.
- Create a walking and cycling route that is safe, convenient, and comfortable for people of all ages and abilities.
- Make the intersection of Burrard Street and Cornwall Avenue safer and more direct for pedestrians and cyclists.
The City of Vancouver wants community input on the project and invites you to a series of drop-in open houses to share your thoughts on ways to improve this corridor:
- Thursday, May 23rd from 7:00pm – 9:00 pm (Presentation at 7:45pm) at Henry Hudson Elementary School (Gym) – 1551 Cypress Street
- Saturday, May 25th from 10:00am – 2:00pm (Presentations at 10:45am & 12:45pm) at Bayview Elementary School (Gym) – 2251 Collingwood Street
