For the Car Barn Garden
I knew this day might come. The white post of death, courtesy of the City of
Vancouver Engineering Department, has finally
shown itself in one of my guerrilla gardens.
New Width of 1stAve #5 - 25Sep05
Not sure when the contruction will start. Probably within the next year
It is the new width of 1st Avenue in advance of the Olympic Village
There is some good news: The Transit Museum Society's Downtown Historic Railway
Car Barn will move to Chinatown which means they get an expanded route
and Vancouver gets some more sustainable transportation.
