Burrard Bridge City of Vancouver Open Houses
The City of Vancouver is celebrating the 75th anniversary of the Burrard Street Bridge with two open houses to ask the public to endorse the sidewalk widening and the addition of outriggers to the bridge to facilitate pedestrians and cyclists. Over the years, Heritage Vancouver has consistently opposed "the outrigger option". Attend the Open Houses and say "no" to outriggers.
