Main Street cycling improvements
We are working to create a safe and accessible network of active transportation routes in the District, connecting town centres to key destinations including the bridgeheads and the City of North Vancouver.
This cycling improvement project will connect a two-block westbound section on Main Street to a priority active transportation route from Ironworkers Memorial Second Narrows Crossing to the City of North Vancouver border. Once complete, cyclists will have a dedicated space to ride along this stretch of Main Street.

Council identified the Main Street cycling link as a priority in November 2019 workshop and has approved the construction of the westbound link.
This westbound two-block section of Main Street fulfills a critical gap in our cycling network, connecting from Harbour Avenue to the City of North Vancouver border at Lynnmouth Park.
With intersection improvements at Main Street and Harbour Avenue to safely guide cyclists and pedestrians crossing Main Street, the route connects to the existing shared bikeway on Barrow Street, and ultimately to the Ironworkers Memorial Second Narrows Bridge and beyond.
Travelling west, the route connects to existing cycling facilities in the City of North Vancouver on Cotton Road and Brooksbank Avenue, tying into the recently completed multi-use paths at the Mountain Highway Interchange.
Future planned active transportation improvements will provide connections to the Spirit Trail through Seylynn Park and Lynn Valley via both Mountain Highway and Salop Trail routes.
