Sign of Spring – 2: Comox Street Greenway

February 26, 2013

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. The planners have designed an active wardrobe for Comox Street and the construction crews are currently cutting the cloth:

Comox at Denman


Here’s the pattern:

Comox Denman to Bidwell


But there are clearly changes to the cut.  The plan calls for parking to removed on this block of Comox, but instead they’re incising the north boulevard to retain some spots while still providing room for the separated bike path:

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.
