Chancellor Boulevard Redesign Albitar, Maria; Arqueza, Janz; Lee, James; Mok, Klassen; Ndina, Ruddy; Tse, Jeremy


J3MRK’s recommended roadway redesign extending from west of Acadia Road to west of Drummond Drive, seeks to provide a welcoming access to the Pacific Spirit Regional Park as well as an efficient route for passage through the University Endowment Lands from the City of Vancouver. The major aspects of the design may be summarized as follows: ● Multi-use underpass for pedestrians and cyclists at the intersection of Hamber and Chancellor Boulevard designed to provide a convenient and safe passageway across the boulevard for the community. ● A road diet rendering Chancellor Boulevard as a two-lane roadway with bicycle lanes and multiuse pathways on either side. ● Traffic operations at Hamber Road and Acadia Road based on 2041 vehicular volume forecasts are anticipated to be satisfactory with no changes to the existing signal. ● Following the removal of combined sewer overflows (CSOs), a new tunnel drainage system will be incorporated to augment and optimize the drainage capacity of the existing system against a 1 in 100 year storm event. ● The provision of space for the purposes of stationing public bikeshare amenities, car-sharing vehicles, electric vehicle charging, as well as family parking spaces to ensure that parks are accessible to the greater public. ● The anticipated total project cost is $5.21 million. ● The project has a design life of 25 years for lighting components, 50 years for roadwork and 100 years for all other project infrastructure.
