Construction & travel advisories

As the finishing touches are being put on the inside of the new CARSA facility, the exterior site is also nearing completion.

A new intersection where the parkade road meets McKenzie Avenue has been completed; traffic lights will have an introductory period of flashing green lights prior to being fully operational by the end of April 2015. New pedestrian crossings and road markings will be in place by that time as well. Pedestrians and cyclists are asked to consult directional information posted at the site, and use alternate routes until the new sidewalks and crosswalks are open.

Access to playing field 3 will continue to be restricted until the Continuing Studies construction project is complete in Aug. 2015.

Access to playing fields 1 and 2 along the CARSA corridor will be available in April 2015. Upon opening, CARSA’s exterior washrooms will also be accessible to field users. Washrooms are located adjacent to the entrance to Fields 2A and 2B and can be accessed via the footpath that parallels CARSA. Parking will be available in lots 2, 4 and the parkade.

Site preparation began the week of Feb. 25, 2013, at the intersection of Gabriola Road and McKenzie Avenue.

Because of construction, parking lot 3 off Gabriola Road is permanently closed. The Alumni Chip Trail through the construction zone has also been closed for the duration of the project to ensure public safety. Pedestrians and cyclists are asked to consult directional information posted at the site, and use alternate routes. Alternative nearby parking areas are lots 2, 4 and 7.
