The Uptown to Waterfront Connector along Memorial Avenue is a vital link in the Town's transportation network that connects the commercial core to the waterfront. With high vehicular speeds and poor visibility, this stretch of road is unsafe and a separated pathway is our top priority for safety and to promote active transportation.
The Town was able to obtain grant funding from Bike BC to help build this multi-use pathway from the uptown commercial area all the way down Memorial Avenue to the waterfront.
This project has occurred in two phases:
Phase 2 - The upper portion of Memorial Avenue multi-use pathway completes the path from the waterfront to the uptown connector. This project was completed March 31, 2020.
Province of British Columbia, Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, Bike BC provided $101,500 toward the first phase of this project.
In June 2018, the Province of British Columbia, Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, Bike BC provided $695,308 to complete the second phase of the bike path.
