Starting next year, the City will be upgrading critical sewer infrastructure along Nanaimo between McGill Street and E 4th Avenue. In coordination with this work, there is also an opportunity to upgrade to the street to make it safer and more comfortable for everyone and to better serve the neighbourhood.
Construction is scheduled from early 2019 to spring 2020. Please refer to page 3 for a map of the project area.

Share your feedback on the following potential changes to Nanaimo St:
 Removal of a travel lane, where excess vehicle capacity exists between 2nd Ave and Pandora St, to reduce crossing distances for people walking, discourage speeding and create a more comfortable experience on the street
 Upgrades to pedestrian crossings at ten key intersections
 Installation of a painted bike lane, as well as improvements for people cycling at key intersections to reduce conflicts with vehicles
 New left-turn lanes down the centre of the street, with new centre medians where possible
 Traffic signal upgrades at five key intersections
 Repaving of the street surface
 Sidewalk repairs where needed
