A key goal of the PMH1 Project is to improve cycling connections throughout Metro Vancouver. Cycling facilities will be included as part of the interchange upgrades to increase opportunities for cyclists to cross the highway, to enhance connections to the regional cycling network and to provide access over the Port Mann Bridge.
During construction, the contractor is required to maintain existing pedestrian and cycling facilities. If construction activity requires the rerouting of cyclists or pedestrians, those changes must be well signed.
