Ward 7 News: 4 Street SE underpass grand opening

Ward 7 Official Website
4 st Underpass
 
The new 4 Street S.E. underpass is now open, providing an important connection between Victoria Park and East Village.

The project started out with a standard underpass design that included the demolition of the King Eddy and dark, narrow sidewalks typically seen in underpasses downtown. Wanting to set a new standard, we held a number of workshops and embarked on a new way of approaching underpass design that focused on creating a welcoming environment for pedestrians and cyclists.

The resulting discussion led The City to adopt new downtown underpass guidelines that won a national award this year for planning excellence. The LED lighting within the walls and handrails helps make the space more people-friendly and the kinetic art within the canopy allows pivoting fins to move with the motion of the wind or a passing train. We hope you appreciate not just the convenience that it offers but the connection to parts of the city that until now, have been isolated from one another.
