Construction and parking update for Nov 28

Cranes on site tomorrow and Saturday
craneFriday, November 29: there will be a crane on site all day near the north entrance to Children’s (#17). A small number of parking stalls in the area will be closed off.
Saturday, November 30: there will be a different crane on site on near Women’s Entrance #95, from 7am-7pm. A larger section of parking stalls will be out of service from 4pm on Friday until end of day on Saturday.
While the cranes are on site, traffic around them will be single lane alternating. A flagger will be on hand to direct vehicles.

136 Parking Stalls are back in service
Good news! Over the last couple of weeks, 136 parking stalls have been returned to service as the Site Services project draws to a close. In the next 2-3 weeks, an additional 125 stalls will be returned to service. We hope that it will be easier for you to find parking during your next visit.

Main entrance to the Ambulatory Care Building opens on Monday
ACBThe sidewalk in front of the main entrance (#44) to the Ambulatory Care Building (the one with Starbucks) has been repaved. The entrance is anticipated to be reopened on Monday, December 2. Until then, entrance #42, across from BC Children’s lobby, is best for those with strollers or wheelchairs.
