With the recent announcement about increased funding that will allow for a smoother flow of  traffic up to and around the Ironworkers Memorial bridge, two meetings have been scheduled to update the public and answer questions. Please see this Lynn Valley Community Association press release for details:

News on the recently announced east-west local connection
and improved highway interchange in Lower Lynn

The Ministry of Transportation will be hosting two Open Houses to present in more detail the plans for the enhanced highway interchange project in Lower Lynn, along with the new east-west connection for local traffic.

The new interchange will give Lynn Valley residents direct south-bound access to Highway #1 and on to Second Narrows Bridge. Local traffic travelling east or west over Lynn Creek will have a new, direct and entirely local connection.

The fact that we are seeing changes to the original plan illustrates the importance and impact of voicing your views.

This new plan was developed as a result of the feedback from the first Open House in which many Lynn Valley residents participated.

Your feedback prompted a remarkable collaboration between MPs, MLAs and the District of North Vancouver, who are all contributing equally to develop and fund the enhancements.

You can find out more about the new plan at the upcoming information sessions:

Tuesday February 21, 5 to 8pm
at The Holiday Inn and Suites

Saturday February 25, 10am-1pm
at Lynnmour Elementary School, 800 Forsman.
