Hastings St: curb lane changes near Gilmore Ave
We're temporarily modifying parking on 2 blocks of Hastings St (4000 and 4100 blocks). This is to accommodate 3 restaurant applications to the City's Active Sidewalks, Open Businesses program to create outdoor dining space. A total of 12 parking spots have been removed on the north side of Hastings near Gilmore. The local and rapid bus stops at Gilmore have been relocated 1 block west to Macdonald Ave. The high occupancy vehicle lane is also being moved from the curb lane to the centre lane. To ensure these changes don't disrupt other businesses, we've added 2 new parking spots on Gilmore. The parking restrictions on adjacent side streets have been adjusted to improve turnover.
Broadway St improvements
After consulting with local residents in August of 2021, we’ve decided to continue the upgrade project on Broadway St. There’s currently a full road closure on Broadway between the intersections of Camrose Dr and Duthie Ave. The road will be fully closed for approximately four months while a new storm system is installed, complete with a full road reconstruction and widening. Broadway between Camrose Dr and Lake City Way is open to local traffic only.
