After 18 months of construction, this iconic Vancouver bridge was reopened on October 21, 2017. At a cost of $35 million, the redesign shows a major improvement in safety function of the bridge and northern intersection following a Complete Streets approach. Specifically, the changes on the bridge included the removal of a southbound motor vehicle lane on the bridge to provide two-way separated bike lanes and sidewalks on both sides of the bridge, as well as the installation of new lighting and 60 new trees.
