A Bridge Too Car

A quick doodle about a potential way to address real or perceived safety concerns for using the current Granville Street Bridge pedestrian underpass as a way to access the proposed greenway.

  1. A gentle ramp would descend from the greenway to the tunnel, open to the sky, cutting the tunnel in two with natural light.
  2. The tunnel would be expanded in width.
  3. Corners would be rounded so you could see what was there.
  4. Stores (Jugo Juice?) could built into the walls to provide more security as well as a refreshment spot for pedestrians.
  5. Cyclists would be required to dismount and walk through underground areas.

UPDATE: See Gordon Price for an idea on what to do on the North side.
