Sources within Vancouver City Hall are confirming that Mayor Robertson and his council colleagues are forging ahead with their trial closure of not one, but possibly two lanes on Burrard bridge. It would appear that a vote is going to take place next week which will ask staff to investigate (yes, one more time) the option of closing lanes on Burrard bridge to vehicular traffic.
The option of "temporarily" piloting a counterflow project will likely be cost prohibitive, given the kind of infrastructure that would be required. That would almost rule out this option before it is even considered.
Watch for the Mayor and his majority on council to push this one through, with a trial of the two-lane closure starting as early as next spring. Let's say it all together now..."gridlock".
