About this project
This new pedestrian-cyclist overpass will span across the Trans-Canada Highway (Highway 1) creating a critical north-south link between key regional trail networks and destinations within Burnaby.
It will cross over Highway 1 between Glencarin Drive and Claude Avenue, establishing a safe and comfortable crossing for residents, commuters and visitors, near popular destination areas in Burnaby.
At this location, the new overpass will connect across Highway 1 by using the existing raised terrain on both sides of the highway to reduce the need for extensive ramp infrastructure to access the overpass. The southern landing will be located within the existing park space near the intersection of Claude Avenue and McCarthy Court, while the northern landing will be located at the trailhead at Glencarin Drive. The location was selected after receiving input from Burnaby residents during public consultation, conducted in person and online in spring 2022.
Please note the Burnaby Lake Overpass was called the Pedestrian-Cyclist Overpass Over Highway 1 in our previous communications.
The project team is now developing detailed designs and construction is anticipated to begin in fall 2023. As work begins on the new overpass, we will inform impacted residents of work that may affect them and work directly with them to understand any concerns.
