I'm lucky to get a midweek "lunch" ride or two in a week, since construction/that light was put in I'm finding round trips from Mount Pleasant have gotten a bit faster. 22-23min to Old Buck lot each way, was frequently 30+ even mid-day before the improvements.

Depending on time of day I often find getting on the highway at McGill is usually less headache

ebikes are great for commuting...  most people won't do it unfortunately.  Maybe have an incentive like Saanich is doing for ebikes.

So is the new Ironworkers interchange basically 100% done now? For those who regularly commute over the bridge - have you noticed a difference?

Not 100% done.

And they need some better signage.

And the parkway by the Superstore.  No signs until you go to cross over the freeway, giving people a very short distance make a change.

I commute over 2-3x a week... going downtown it'll  be quite a bit better than it has been - but kinda just back to the way it was - once the southbound path is finally open again; its too bad there's not going to be any improvements to the switchbacks down to Skeena/Bridgeway. Coming back, the new stoplight coming north on the north end is... I guess useful. Until all the paths in that area are done, its still not great unless you really know where you're going. The best/most improvements are around Keith/Fern/Old Lillooet/Mt Highway and are mostly good, although there's some weird choices on circuitous routing, and some sections that have just weirdly been left as gravel. Its definitely improved safety getting over to Seymour from my place
