Beacon Hill Park road-change preps begin

On Monday the city will begin working to convert some of Beacon Hill Park's roads to temporary multi-use trails, and change the direction of traffic flow in the park.

The changes, which include installing temporary bollards, signage and curb improvements, are part of a pilot project. Prep work runs throughout July and the pilot begins Aug. 1. Three months later the city will consult with the public to assess their reaction to the changes. If feedback is positive, the city will make the temporary road-closure measures permanent.

Road access will remain to all the park's amenities and parking lots will remain open throughout the pilot project.
