The latest engagement period for this project has ended.

The City of Vancouver began work on the Westside Bike Mobility Project in May 2018. The goal of the project is to establish a multimodal network of north-south Complete Streets to serve the west side of Vancouver (neighborhoods and business districts located west of Interstate 5).

Starting August 2019, the City engaged west side neighborhoods and businesses in examining individual potential Complete Street corridors and identifying a set of improvements that will increase safety and enhance mobility for all users. This phase of the project focused specifically on Columbia, Washington, Daniels and Franklin streets.

The City formed a Community Advisory Committee (CAC) that considered the benefits and tradeoffs of different options, including safety, accessibility, mobility, neighborhood livability and parking. Along with feedback from broader public outreach activities and events in January and February 2020, the CAC helped shape a recommendation to Vancouver City Council about the project.

At the City Council meeting on February 24, 2020, City Council directed staff to implement protected bike lanes and other multimodal improvements on Columbia Street in conjunction with planned repaving projects in 2020 and 2021. Staff will be conducting additional public outreach in advance of the repaving. Please sign up at www.cityofvancouver.us/BikeMobility to receive email newsletters to stay up to date as the project progresses.

Thank you to the community members who have participated in Westside Bike Mobility Project events and activities! Feedback received is included in the Phase III Public Outreach Summary.
