  2. Upcoming Project on Montroyal Blvd that includes Bike Lanes (Brian Counihan)
    • The bridge over Mosquito Creek on Mt Royal Boulevard needs replacement and it is planned to add one more sidewalk and 2x 1.5 m bike lanes between Skyline Dr and Glen Canyon Dr.
    • It is anticipated that the preliminary design will be ready in March, 2016 and construction to begin in spring/summer 2016, and last for about seven months.
    • The web page at: has a map and photo of the existing bridge.
    • We would like to see wider bike lanes and suggested narrowing the planned 3.5 m wide traffic lanes.
    • Brian also mentioned that he is involved in the project to install a bike path from Barrow Street to the IWM bridge.
  3. Mountain Highway Interchange
    • Need for separating bike lanes from motor vehicle traffic, including no uncontrolled highway ramp crossings
    • A separate bike/pedestrian overpass across the highway and the ramps just east of the new interchange, to connect with Mountain Hwy and Arborlynn
    • A separated "bike highway" along the highway from Mountain Hwy to Ironworkers Bridge, going over or under the ramps at Fern. It would make biking to Vancouver as fast or even faster than driving, especially by ebike.
    • There were lengthy discussion on these proposals and a few others, so it was decided to wait until after we attend the open house before formulating our recommendations.
    • There will be a Open House Tuesday, January 19, from 4:00 - 8:00 pm at the Holiday Inn & Suites, 700 Old Lillooet Road
    • After we get plans at the open house, then we should get a joint meeting with heads of major projects and get Colin involved.
