"The City of Vancouver is currently implementing street improvements to 10th Avenue, from Oak Street to Cambie Street. During construction, traffic on 10th Avenue will be one-way eastbound from Oak Street to Willow Street. During this time, you can access 10th Avenue from Oak Street or Laurel Street, depending on your destination.
