Vancouver’s Crown Street, below SW Marine has been rebuilt to reduce vehicle speeds, improve the pedestrian experience and direct rainfall away from storm drains into the soil, improving the natural soil and hydrological balance.

The single lane portions of this street are only 10.5 ft wide, the two lane portions are 22 ft. wide.
