Sign of Spring – 2: Comox Street Greenway
Street works for greenways – notably for the new Comox-Helmcken route - make what seem to be small changes in the fabric of the city - and yet we end up with a whole new outfit.

It’s at the intersections where the greatest differences are evident - where the pedestrians, given the new narrowness of the street, will comfortably have the right-of-way.
