Lakelse Gateway Connection Project

Updates and more

Lakelse Gateway Connection Project

The Lakelse Gateway Connection Project will more safely connect Terrace to Thornhill and beyond via a 1-kilometre multi-use pathway on the north side of Lakelse Avenue. The project will upgrade the existing gravel shoulder to a separated, safe, and accessible 3-metre wide asphalt pathway, and complete related required roadworks. This pathway will span from the historic Old Skeena Bridge at the east end to the entry into downtown Terrace at Apsley Street. At Apsley Street, the pathway will terminate at a small gateway feature—likely including signage, landscaping, and a resting area—marking the entrance into downtown Terrace.

A gateway project was included in our 2018 Downtown Action Plan as one of “Ten Big Moves,” a series of catalyst projects to accelerate a more dynamic downtown for Terrace. This project will significantly enhance this key gateway into Terrace while also completing a recreational connection to existing hiking and cycling trails and the Skeena River. It will serve the needs of residents and provide a recreational amenity for visitors to our community.
