Granville Bridge construction detours begin on March 2

Granville Bridge construction detours begin on March 2

VANCOUVER – The next phase of work on the Granville Connector project requires temporary closure of Granville Street between the Howe/Seymour ramps and Drake Street starting March 2.

Crews will remove a section of the existing Granville bridge structure north of Pacific Street in the coming months and replace it with a new elevated roadway connecting to a new local road network that will replace the former north loops.

During this time, all road users will be detoured to the Howe and Seymour ramps, a City of Vancouver release said.

On the north end of the Granville bridge, two lanes of traffic will be available on both Seymour and Howe ramps for vehicles driving on and off the bridge during construction, and sidewalks on both sides of the bridge, including the Howe and Seymour ramps, will remain open as much as possible throughout construction, the release said.

The work is part of a $50 million capital project to upgrade the bridge, which was originally built in 1954 and intended for freeways that were never built.

In September 2020, council endorsed the long-term design concept for the Granville Connector and directed staff to proceed with the interim Granville Connector construction, the release said.
