The Wesbrook Mall corridor from 16th Avenue to Chancellor Boulevard was upgraded in phases to repair the condition of the roadway and enhance safety and user experience for all modes of transportation. Improvements were made to street lighting, and new dedicated bus and bike lanes were put in place.

Overview

The first phase of the Wesbrook Mall Upgrades was completed in 2019 and the second phase of construction between Thunderbird Boulevard and University Boulevard is now complete. These improvements were informed by two phases of public consultation done in 2015 as part of the planning for the U Boulevard Area.

The improvements to the Wesbrook Mall corridor are being done in collaboration with the University Endowment Lands, the University Neighbourhoods Association, TransLink, and Metro Vancouver.
