Our new feature exhibit Fixed explores the community conversation about creating a permanent, driveable link to the Sunshine Coast. Known today as a “fixed link”, the community has been talking about building a fixed link since the 1950s, around the same time that car ferries were introduced to the Sunshine Coast. Fixed explores the history of transportation on the Sunshine Coast, the introduction of the first car ferry and the conversation observed in local newspapers from the 1950s-present. The exhibit will also feature the latest feasibility study that highlights two possible connections: the Anvil Island bridge and the road to Squamish. Come down and get your fix of local history!
