Chilliwack, BC – Tuesday’s Chilliwack City Council meeting will hold a busy agenda as summer kicks in. One of the shiny topics for Council will be receiving minutes from the May Transportation Advisory Committee.
The Chair is Councilor Chuck Stam and Vice Chair is Ken Popove. Also on the Committee includes RCMP Cpl. Lee Dyson.
The big ticket item is an update on the success of the Fraser Valley Express #66.BC Transit Funding is now a thorny issue as the Province has stated that funding will be frozen for the foreseeable future.
City Deputy Director of Engineering Rod Sanderson discussed the memo regarding Chilliwack River Road bicycle lane improvements and the map and information will be presented.
Also information on the New Vedder Bridge will be presented for these discussions. Carly Ferguson advised that the Chamber of Commerce submitted a letter of support to the City’s Chief Administrative Officer in support of Vedder Bridge replacement. What stalls this project is the lack of funding committment from the Feds and the Province. The City has already placed money in the bank for this large improvement.
