Text from 2006:
They're slamming through the new lanes of the Sea to Sky highway north of Vancouver. The deadly stretch of road connects Vancouver with the ski resort town of Whistler. The expansion of the highway is one of many projects underway as southwestern BC gets ready for the 2010 Olympic Games.
In the tiny community of Britannia Beach, the 99'er Diner, a house and a workshop sit in the way of progress. They are now abandoned, awaiting the wrecker's ball.
I managed to get some pictures of what will soon not exist.
All hail the future!
