Welcome to the Brunette Interchange engagement site.
Located on Highway 1, the Brunette Avenue interchange is heavily used by highway traffic headed for Coquitlam and New Westminster. It also serves as a key local connection between these municipalities. The interchange also serves cyclists and pedestrians along Brunette Avenue, especially those accessing the Braid Street SkyTrain Station. Finally, it is the primary interchange for commercial vehicles travelling between Highway 1 and Lougheed Highway in Coquitlam and Brunette Avenue in New Westminster.
Improving the Brunette overpass is critical for moving people and goods in this area and for private and emergency vehicles accessing Royal Columbian Hospital. Currently, this interchange is often a bottleneck on the Highway 1 corridor, especially at peak times. The BC Government is looking at options to unclog the bottleneck and get traffic moving again.
In November and December 2016, there was an online survey and 4 open houses held. The current input process is closed (as of 4pm on December 23, 2016).
There will be more opportunities to provide feedback in the future.
