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 between Phillips Ave and Lake City Way is open to local traffic only (expect delays).
