The City extends its thanks to residents and businesses as a busy summer of road work and special events comes to a close, with notice of two significant pieces of work taking place over Labour Day Weekend.

Significant filming will take place throughout downtown with full road closures on Georgia (Pender to Seymour, 4am-1pm) and Hastings (Bute to Howe, 1pm-9pm).

Additionally, the City is working to bring the Burrard Street Corridor Project to completion, with full road closures scheduled to accommodate paving work over Labour Day Weekend. Motorists are encouraged to use Granville Bridge as an alternative to Burrard Bridge, and to follow directions on changeable message boards and public signage. Local access for residents will be maintained.

In order to support traffic and transit movement during this busy period of street use, the City will be clearing parking along a number of arterial routes. Routes include segments of Howe, Pender, Seymour, and Thurlow Streets.  

The City extends its thanks to residents and travelers for their patience while filming is underway and this critical infrastructure work is completed.
