Motorists advised of upcoming Terminal Avenue temporary lane closures

Summary

Motorists are advised that work along Terminal Avenue between Stewart Avenue and St. George Street will lead to a temporary road closure between the hours of 9:00 am and 3:30 pm from Monday, February 22 to Friday, February 26.

Traffic management and control plans will be used while the work is carried out and will result in a temporary closure of one lane at a time for (a maximum of) one block sections. Peak travel times and BC Ferries arrival schedules have been identified and considered in the lane closure timing.
