Hornby bike route previewed online

Vancouver residents can get a sneak peek at a proposed separated bicycle lane along Hornby Street.

Vancouver residents can get a sneak peek at a proposed separated bicycle lane along Hornby Street.

The city posted detailed block-to-block diagrams and images of the proposed route on its website on Thursday and announced a second open house to give people the opportunity to ask questions and give feedback.

Mayor Gregor Robertson said in a release the separated bike lane would help create a more complete and safe cycling network.

The diagrams illustrate how the bike route will impact traffic, parking and bus stops.

For example, the busy corner where Hornby intersects West Georgia shows parking has been removed along the side of the Hotel Vancouver to allow two through lanes, one turning lane and the bike lane that is separated by a row of flower boxes.

The city, which has received more than 2,000 comments about the bike route, announced a second open house Wednesday at the Pacific Centre Mall rotunda.
