Here is some more information from the city:
A top priority of Transportation 2040 is to upgrade the 10th Avenue Corridor to be more safe, convenient, comfortable, and fun for people of all ages and abilities to walk and cycle.
The 10th Avenue local-street bikeway runs from Victoria Drive to Trafalgar Street, linking many key destinations like Vancouver General Hospital (VGH) and Commercial Drive, plus several busy north-south cycling routes.
Over 500,000 people cycle on 10th Avenue every year, making it one of the busiest east-west bikeways in the city.
As part of this project, we're proposing to:
- Improve comfort and accessibility for people walking and cycling, especially in busier sections around VGH
- Address safety concerns for all road users, especially at key intersections
- Accommodate the loading and access needs of adjacent businesses and institutions
This project will be developed and implemented between 2015 and 2017.
