The Ironworkers Memorial Second Narrows Bridge will be getting wider sidewalks to improve safety and mobility for cyclists and pedestrians using this key water crossing connecting North Vancouver with the City of Vancouver and Burnaby.

Public open houses were held July 23 and 24, 2014 to share plans and obtain input for consideration in construction and traffic management.

See Community Consultation for details.

Last year, the ministry committed to undertake a project to replace the pedestrian railings on the bridge to improve safety for cyclists and pedestrians. As part of this work and recognizing that the narrow sidewalks have been a major constriction for cyclist mobility, the ministry committed to review options to also widen both sidewalks to enhance pedestrian and cycling movements. After a thorough technical review earlier this year, the ministry is pleased to announce that a decision has been made to proceed with widening the sidewalks from the existing 1.2 m to 2.5 m.
