6th Street Active Transportation Bridge

Start: January 2020

End: Ongoing

Last Updated: August 26, 2021

Project Description:

A 6th Street Multi-Use Bridge is included in the recently completed Parks & Recreation Master Plan and referenced in the Transportation Master Plan for the City of Courtenay. In addition, the Downtown Courtenay Playbook notes an additional crossing at Sixth Street should be explored further.

A 6th Street Multi-Use Bridge would provide a dedicated cycling and pedestrian connection between downtown and Simms Millennium Park as well as a connection to the future cycling network along 6th Street, Anderton Avenue, the Courtenay Riverway Trail, and the pathway connection to the Lewis Centre.

2021 Detailed Design

Detailed design is underway on a 4-metre wide Symmetrical Cable Stayed Bridge.   A completed detailed design will position the project to apply for “shovel-ready” grant opportunities should they become available.
