To support construction of the VGH Phil and Jennie Gaglardi Surgical Centre, a crane will be installed on September 21, necessitating partial closure of Laurel Street.
The road closure will be in effect on Saturday, September 21, from 7 am to 2 pm.
The Diamond Centre parkade and drop-off/pick-up loop will remain accessible to vehicles from 12th Avenue only.
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.
The Laurel Street entrance to Jim Pattison Pavilion will remain accessible, and access to the Diamond Centre will be maintained for those with the appropriate security access badge.
Please refer to the map below depicting the Laurel Street closure in effect at 7 am Saturday, September 21. Traffic control flaggers will be onsite to help with directions.
Thank you for your understanding as we build the future of surgery. We look forward to opening our new perioperative suite in January 2021.

During the road closure, vehicles will be unable to access the Diamond Centre parkade from W. 10th Avenue.
