VGH road closure: August 23-August 25


Construction to expand the Phil and Jennie Gaglardi Surgical Centre at VGH is on schedule and we can look forward to opening our new perioperative suite in January 2021. To support this work, a crane will be installed over the weekend, necessitating partial closure of Laurel Street.

The road closure will be in effect Friday, August 23, at 6 pm to Sunday, August 25, at 7 pm. 

Driving to VGH

The Diamond Centre parkade and drop-off/pick-up loop will remain accessible to vehicles from 12th Avenue only. 

Walking or cycling to VGH

The west sidewalk will remain open for pedestrians the full length of Laurel Street between 10th and 12th Avenues. For everyone's safety, we ask cyclists to walk their bikes should they choose to use the west sidewalk to travel between 10th and 12th.  

Accessing VGH sites 

The Laurel Street entrance to Jim Pattison Pavilion will remain accessible. 

Please refer to the map below depicting the Laurel Street closure in effect at 6 pm Friday, August 23. Traffic control flaggers will be onsite to help with directions.
