After all of the talk about a bypass around Vernon, it will never happen in my lifetime. This council and future councils are not going to go that route because of the cost and I can see their point.
What is the solution?
The answer is an elevated highway starting at the DND grounds and terminating just past 48th Avenue.
The distance is 3.5 kilometres and this could be increased if needed. This would be only for traffic that would not be stopping in Vernon. There would be no need for traffic lights as this is one way on and off.
The cost would still be in the millions to build but nowhere near the cost of a bypass. There will be people who will not like it but this is happening in the cities and now it’s a way of life.
Eric Foster and city council, let’s grab the bull by the horns and let’s run with this.
