Gilmore Overpass Project

The City of Burnaby is improving north-south cycling and walking connections with the addition of a multi-use path on the Gilmore Diversion over Highway 1. This will be fully separated from vehicle traffic, improving safety.

The separated path will be located on the west side of the overpass. To make room for the new path, one northbound lane will be removed. Impact to northbound traffic is anticipated to be minimal. 

The new separated path will also extend beyond the overpass to Myrtle Street at the north end and to Dominion Street in the south.

Budget & Timeline

Work is expected to be complete in early 2021. Work is estimated to cost $3 million, with $790,000 of that coming from TransLink. 

This project meets many of the city’s strategic goals, including creating a healthier, safer and more connected community.

This overpass project was identified as an area of opportunity in the Burnaby Transportation Plan (2017-18), and when completed it will be a welcomed addition to the City’s cycling network.
