Permanent Burrard Bridge bike lanes approved

Vancouver City Hall voted to approve making the Burrard Bridge bike lanes permanent. From CBC’s website:

“Vancouver city councillors voted Thursday to make the Burrard Bridge bike lanes permanent, just a day after the millionth cyclist used the lanes to cross the bridge.
The councillors unanimously approved a $2-million plan that will include permanent replacements for the concrete barricade on the bridge deck.
City staff estimated the millionth cyclist used the lane to cross around 10 p.m. PT Wednesday, based on data collected by sensors embedded in the lanes that counted the metal wheels.
According to city staff, the number of cyclists using the bridge has increased 24 per cent since the lanes were opened on July 13 last year.”
