Update on the Comox Helmcken Greenway

Construction activities for the City of Vancouver’s Comox Helmcken Greenway project continue beside St. Paul’s Hospital.

As you have all seen over the last few weeks we have been steadily working to complete the Comox/Burrard/Helmcken portion of the bikeway. We are now moving to implement the “west bound only” change to the Comox – Thurlow to Burrard section. We will have crews over the next few days completely electrical work and pouring concrete medians. Signage will be implemented to facilitate the change in direction. 

The City’s Greenway project planning is supported by PHC, and has been integrated into the St. Paul’s Redevelopment Planning process by our project team, led by Bonnie Maples. Additionally, prior to the Greenway project start, City staff engaged with PHC several times, receiving input from the Emergency Department, Emergency Preparedness, Physical Plant, Security, Materiel Management and Planning, and modifying parts of the Greenway project design in response to PHC feedback.
