We’re developing conceptual plans for an improved walking, rolling, and cycling path across Granville Bridge.

Originally designed for high-volume freeways that were never built, Granville Bridge presents significant accessibility and safety challenges for today’s urban context.

The Granville Bridge Connector would address a major gap in the city’s active transportation network and serve some of the densest parts of the city. There is also potential for features such as art, lighting, seating, and lookout stations to create a special place and enjoyable experience for people of all ages and abilities.

The future of Northeast False Creek 


In 2015, City Council chose to move forward with a plan to replace the viaducts with a more resilient and connected street network. The decision is dependent on a new area plan for Northeast False Creek.


Replacing the viaducts is a self-funding solution with many public benefits including a larger Creekside Park and an improved transportation network that replaces vulnerable infrastructure.
