Finlayson Street Paving This Weekend

Motorists, cyclists and pedestrians are advised that Finlayson Street, from Blanshard Street through Quadra Street, will be closed for paving Saturday, October 29 and Sunday, October 30 as follows:

  • Saturday, October 29 – Finlayson Street, from Blanshard Street through Quadra Street, will be closed to traffic, except buses, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. The Quadra Street intersection will be closed in all directions. Blanshard Street      will be open for north/south traffic.

  • Sunday, October 30 – Finlayson Street, from Blanshard Street through Quadra Street will be closed to all traffic from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. The Quadra Street intersection will be opened to north/south traffic at approximately 3 p.m.     

The public is encouraged to use alternate routes during the closure. Signs are posted, and emergency services and BC Transit have been advised.

These closures are weather dependent as the road must be dry for paving to occur. If work is postponed due to weather, paving on Finlayson Street will occur on the next dry weekday, and paving of the intersection at Quadra Street will take place in the evening or the following weekend.

Once completed, the intersection will include a new asphalt surface, improved sidewalk and wheelchair ramp mobility access, and upgraded storm catch basins for improved drainage.
