The South Shoreline Trail Improvements Project is complete.

The South Shoreline Trail Improvements Project will improve safety for cyclists and pedestrians. Improvements include widening the path, removal of root intrusions and resurfacing of the path, improved drainage, better sightlines, and enhanced signage. Construction began in May 2019 and is expected to be completed in approximately 10 weeks. 

Impact to you

  • Pedestrian and Cyclist Routes – Pedestrians and cyclists will be detoured. Please follow signs and traffic control persons. 
  • Traffic – The westbound curb lane on Murray Street will be closed from approximately Capilano Road to the west intersection at Klahanie Drive.
  • Parking - There will be restrictions to parking along Murray Street in areas around construction.

For detailed traffic updates, please check Roadwork and Construction, or subscribe to this page for alerts. We are working to minimize the impact of this project on residents, businesses, and commuters in the area.
