Gilmore Avenue and Central Valley Greenway Rehabilitation

Updated August 18, 2020

Beginning the week of August 10, the City of Burnaby is undertaking a major road and urban trail rehabilitation project on Gilmore Avenue and the Central Valley Greenway. 

Closures and detours will be required to accommodate the work in August and September. The project area includes Gilmore Avenue (and the adjacent urban trail) between Dawson Street and the CN Rail crossing at Still Creek Avenue, and a section of Central Valley Greenway east of Gilmore.

Construction is scheduled to conclude by the end of the year.

Due to the nature of roadwork taking place adjacent to CN Rail tracks, concrete must be poured evenly across all lanes of traffic at the same time. As a result, Gilmore Avenue and the Central Valley Greenway on the west side of Gilmore will be closed to all traffic in both directions beginning mid-August. Pedestrians and dismounted cyclists will be able to use the west Central Valley Greenway between Dawson Street and Still Creek Avenue. The sidewalk on the east will remain closed until Friday, August 21.

During this period, approximately 600 metres of the Central Valley Greenway east of Gilmore will also be closed for rehabilitation. Signage will be posted to assist cyclists to detour along Still Creek Drive.

Upon completion of this phase of construction in September, Gilmore Avenue will accommodate single lane traffic in both directions until the end of construction, and the closed section of Central Valley Greenway will re-open.
