If you’ve driven along the Causeway through Stanley Park lately, you’ll note the improvements along its east side are nearly complete. A divided bike and pedestrian lane is now separated from vehicle traffic by a barrier. SPES has been included in the environmental monitoring process and we are pleased to report that erosion control measures, habitat preservation and habitat restoration are on track.
Slope stabilization along the route will include seeding and planting in the spring, while coarse woody debris (logs) has been installed on the banks near watercourses to control erosion. All the bare slopes lining the development appear to be stable following the removal of protective poly sheets.
Work on the west side of the Causeway began on January 3. You can view the causeway project plans and design on the province’s ‘Transportation Infrastructure: Projects’ webpage: http://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/transportation/transportation-infrastructure/projects/stanley-park-causeway
