VANCOUVER, B.C. — In an effort to improve safety, the S-curve road between Gilford St. and the Lost Lagoon overpass will be straightened, and lanes widened.
The $13.5 million project may get under way as early as the end of this month. There will also be a median installed to separate Lions Gate Bridge traffic from Stanley Park traffic.
The Insurance Corp. of B.C., Vancouver City, the parks board, TransLink and the province will all be chipping in towards the project. However, the construction delays have North Vancouver Chamber of Commerce president, Judi Ainsworth concerned that the movement of goods to the North Shore may be impeded.
City officials say three lanes will remain open at all times, so drivers should only expect minor delays due to single lane closures.
