Chilliwack – The major traffic re-routing near the Landing Centre and Chilliwack Curling Rink is almost complete.
Chilliwack City Crews planted 126 new trees and installed just over 1,000 metres of new bike lanes along Spadina between Ashwell and Corbould.
In January 2021, City crews took a drone shot and shared that to social media.
In November Chilliwack Mayor Ken Popove took to social media to post a few photos of the paving.
This project incorporates the vision of a Neighbourhood Greenway as recommended in the Downtown Land Use and Development Plan (2010). Neighbourhood greenways are enhanced pedestrian and bicycle connections linking key activity nodes and residential neighbourhoods.
- Approximately 530m of road reconstruction
- Street trees
- Parking stalls
- Grass boulevards
Frequently Asked Questions:
- The reduction in available road parking will be 50 stalls, but the planned parking lot expansion adjacent to the Chilliwack Curling Club will add more total parking stalls than will be lost in this project.
- If you are unable to turn left into your driveway because of the centre median, there will be three mid-block crossings through the median to permit u-turns.
- Both sides of Spadina Avenue will be receiving new sidewalks as well as along the centre median. Three new crosswalks will be installed. A tree lined buffer between the sidewalk and the travel lane will enhance safety and comfort for pedestrians.
