Construction & travel advisories

Gabriola Road now open

Gabriola Road between McKenzie Avenue and Ring Road has reopened to two-way vehicle traffic. The road surface will remain uneven until repaving takes place in spring 2014. Cyclists are asked to use caution.

Site preparation has begun

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.
