4. Ewen Avenue & Furness Street
Primarily operated by: SRY
Safety audit complete: Yes
Design complete: Achieved preliminary design concept.
Construction status: TBD
Whistle cessation process: Step 4
Comments: This crossing faces several constraints due to the close proximity of multiple Metro Vancouver underground utilities and the rail line along Ewen Avenue. Major improvement work is required to create enough area for an automatic signal system to be installed. Due to the configuration of the intersection, the City is looking at an option to place the signal system over top of the Metro Vancouver water main. If this cannot be done, then it will be necessary to re-align roads in a manner similar to the work required at the other crossings along Ewen Avenue.
