Corridor Redesign of Chancellor Boulevard : Detailed Design Report Konway, Bain; Krahn, Brad; Martinson, Stuart; Norwick, Megan; Ong, Katrina; Pertch, Chris


Chancellor Boulevard is one of four roads accessing the University of British Columbia’s Point Grey campus. The corridor currently experiences heavy vehicle traffic at two peak times per day with drivers routinely exceeding the posted speed of 60 km/hr. In the current design, cyclists must share the road with vehicles as there is no separated or designated bike lane. Campus Consulting Ltd. was retained to complete both a preliminary and detailed design. The detailed design report herein includes: a grade separated pedestrian underpass, a two-lane road (without a median), a roundabout to slow traffic, and an infiltration swale separating the multi-use path from the road to infiltrate road runoff. The Corridor Redesign of Chancellor Boulevard provides an opportunity to address some of these key issues as well as other identified issues including stormwater management, environmental protection, geotechnical concerns, and stakeholder concerns. The objectives governing the redesign process include: • meeting all future transportation demands, • prioritizing buses, cyclists, and pedestrians and ensuring the safety of all road users, • avoiding negatively impacting Pacific Spirit Park and the habitats it provides, • accommodating and improving drainage, and • minimizing costs and optimizing the construction schedule. The updated cost of the design is $3.86 million, an increase from $3.43 million as estimated during the preliminary design phase.
