City of Vancouver staff have outlined their support and drafted plans for the most economical and practical route option for the False Creek Flats Arterial Road project — the direct, straight route along Prior Street and Venables Street.

Next week, city council will consider staff’s recommendations to approve the option of improving the existing Prior/Venables route, including the construction of road underpass beneath the Burrard Inlet railway (BIR) line at Glen Drive.

The Prior/Venables route is supported by the Port of Vancouver, CN, TransLink, BC Trucking Association, and Providence Healthcare, which is building the new $1.9-billion St. Paul’s Hospital at the western end of the route.
