Traffic Updates

Patrons of the UBC Aquatic Centre are invited to review the construction and traffic related impacts outlined below. Please plan ahead and allow for extra time travelling to/from the UBC Aquatic Centre.

Student Union Boulevard

  • Paving will not be completed at Student Union Boulevard in time for the first week of school. It will be open to two-way traffic and have four paved pedestrian crossings.
    • Between Exchange & Gage
    • Connecting Athletes Walk (adjacent SRC and the UBC Aquatic Centre)
    • Along the sidewalk connecting North Parkade with Student Union Boulevard
    • West end of the south sidewalk Student Union Boulevard
  • It’s likely that paving and roadwork to complete the project will be completed after hours to minimize impact on traffic and congestion.

Wesbrook Mall & University Boulevard intersection

  • The intersection will likely not have light re-installed until the week of September 16.
  • The intersection will remain controlled by flaggers from 7am-6pm  and operate as a four-way stop outside of these times.
  • Pedestrian crosswalks will be re-opened by end of business Friday, August 30
  • Two additional closures will occur in order to complete the work at this intersection; University Boulevard east of Wesbrook Mall will be closed to accommodate the final intersection construction during these periods:
    • Friday, September 6th – Sunday, September 8th from 7am to 6pm
    • Friday, September 13th – Sunday, September 15th from 7am to 6pm
  • A sidewalk along the north side of University Boulevard connecting War Memorial Gym to the Alumni Centre will open for Tuesday, September 3.
    • This is not the final, finished path, but it will provide a pedestrian corridor for a high volume route

University Blvd Lot Now Open:   Visitors to the UBC Aquatic Centre now have access to a centrally located underground parking lot for their short-term needs with direct access just steps from the UBC Aquatic Centre. Vehicle entrance to the University Blvd Lot is adjacent the Robert H. Lee Alumni Centre and AMS Nest and provides wheelchair accessible stalls, elevator access and a number of electric vehicle charging stations. As the area along University Blvd. and Wesbrook is under construction and the entrance to the new parking lot is still under construction, please be mindful of other road users and especially pedestrians and cyclists.
