Cornwall Avenue near Burrard Bridge to close for part of weekend
Expect traffic slowdowns this weekend near the corner of Burrard Street and Cornwall Avenue.
The City of Vancouver has announced that Cornwall will be closed between Cypress Street and the Burrard Bridge from 7 a.m. Saturday (December 7) to 6 a.m. Sunday (December 8).
The Burrard Bridge will only have one lane going in each direction over the same time period, and Burrard Street will also be reduced to a single lane going through the intersection with Cornwall.
Pedestrians and cyclists will be able to traverse the intersection.
According to the city, this construction project will ensure that pedestrians will only have to cross two streets rather than a maximum of five. Another objective is to slow traffic coming off the bridge and onto Cornwall.
The reshaping of the south end of the Burrard Bridge is expected to cost $6 million.
