June 25: Willingdon Avenue from Canada Way to Burke 

Willingdon Avenue will be closed from Canada Way to Burke Street in both directions from 8am to 1pm on Tuesday, June 25 due to the funeral procession and recessional for Senior Fire Captain Ken Kinney who passed away in the line-of-duty.

The City of Burnaby is alerting residents, businesses and institutions along the route that will be most impacted. TransLink is organizing detours for bus routes that travel through the area.
