The City of Vancouver has begun public consultation on the Granville Bridge Connector, an improved walking, rolling, and cycling route across Granville Bridge.

The City is hoping to have several concepts to review by summer 2019, with a decision by city council expected this fall. Detailed design work should begin in 2020.

Granville Bridge was designed to connect to high-speed, high-volume freeways that were never built. The freeway-style design presents significant safety and accessibility challenges for today’s urban context.

There are several major issues with today’s Granville Bridge, including narrow and uncomfortable sidewalks next to high-speed traffic and Steps in the sidewalks at crossings make the bridge inaccessible for people with mobility aids such as wheelchairs and scooters.

Have your say by completing an online survey here and attend an open house or public workshop from April 12th-30th.
