Dunsmuir Viaduct Next up for a Bike Lane!

The big news early this week is that the Dunsmuir Viaduct will likely be the next Vancouver crossing to receive a dedicated, separated bike lane. This will provide easy, level access to the downtown core from the Union / Adanac bike lane, and connect East Vancouver directly to the Dunsmuir bike lane downtown.

Remove the Viaduct!

Good ideas need to be spread wide, in hope they gain traction. Paul Hillson has an idea that I hope Vancouver planners take notice of: removing the Georgia and Dunsmuir Street viaducts.

The viaducts have served their purpose, as the train tracks they originally rose over no longer exist. Today, they serve as a reminder of the direction Vancouver nearly went in the '70s - they are the only part of a massive highway construction plan that ever saw completion.
