West Vancouver Rotarians Judith Harder, Bob Michieli and Michael Upward pedal across Rodgers Creek Bridge during the new crossing’s official opening last week. British Pacific Properties funded the $10-million bridge and the extension of Chippendale Road, a designated heavy truck route that provides alternative access to Mulgrave and Collingwood private schools.

The new bridge and road will also connect older British Properties neighbourhoods with the future Cypress Village, a development concept central to the Upper Lands vision that council recently endorsed.
