Thank you for sharing your ideas and concerns about the future Downtown Squamish Truck Route. Over the past several months, the District has collected and analyzed traffic data as well as reviewed background reports and environmental and engineering considerations for all of the Truck Route options.
A second Downtown Truck Route Study public open house was held November 16 where an overview of the analysis completed to date, and a summary of what we have heard through the consultation process was provided. Thank you to everyone who attended and provided feedback.
The District of Squamish is undertaking a Downtown Truck Route Study (the study) to ensure a safe and efficient downtown truck route can support rising port activities, while balancing the needs of the growing Squamish community. The Downtown Truck Route study was one of the key recommendations in the District’s 2031 Multi-Modal Transportation Plan, adopted by District Council in 2011.
Over the next five months, the District will explore four options that are currently being considered as potential future downtown truck routes. Each truck route scenario will have varying degrees of social, environmental, technical and economic impacts to be considered and evaluated further. Please view the existing and proposed routes on the map below.
Community involvement will be a key component in the development of a future downtown truck route. We’re interested in hearing what you think.
