Terminal Avenue is part of the old Island Highway that cuts downtown Nanaimo into two sections. When the new highway was completed, some years ago now, the traffic downtown was notably less than before. Unfortunately, this does not seem to be the case anymore as a steady stream of vehicle traffic rumbles past incessantly along this road.
This is the view of Terminal Avenue from the Bastion Street bridge looking south. Most of the buildings shown are the backside of the old Commercial Street businesses.
