CPR tracks are a physical and psychological barrier to our waterfront. An underpass will benefit both the downtown as well as the waterfront, not to mention safety and liability concerns.
An underpass has been in our OCP for 20 years – to be built in 2014.
Developers have paid into a fund, CPR has indicated they would contribute and the city is paying lease fees for rights to the property. Unfortunately this isn’t ready for a referendum now. This should be dealt with, sooner rather than later, as it’s costing us money while we do nothing. Ultimately the taxpayer will decide.
