Note: Project was interrupted by City of Vancouver sewage repair on W 8th Avenue in August. Further, the City will replace the traffic circle and Green Streets plot with stop signs due to limited visibility and the accident risk level associated with vehicle/cyclist/pedestrian traffic at this intersection. This was confirmed by Green Streets Co-ordinator, Sarah Orchard, March 10, 2015.
