A number of access improvement projects are beginning this week at UBC Okanagan to help continue the development of the new west campus access.
For your safety, please obey flaggers and signage and allow yourself extra time when travelling through these areas. For a construction and detour map, visit transportation.ok.ubc.ca.
July 26: University Way diversion in effect
In order to install a new walkway along the north side of the Commons building, construction fencing will be placed along the centre lane of University Way near Parking Lot F from Thursday, July 26 until approximately the end of August. The accessible parking stalls on University Way will be temporarily relocated to Lot F to allow for continued two-way traffic while the walkway is installed.
There will be short periods of single-lane alternating traffic to allow for the passage of construction and delivery vehicles. Directional signage will be posted for the duration of this work and flaggers will be on-site during periods of single-lane traffic.
This project is managed by UBC Properties Trust.
July 27: Single-lane traffic on Discovery Ave.
As part of the ongoing improvements to Parking Lots C and G, Discovery Avenue will be subject to single-lane alternating traffic between the Gym and the Reichwald Health Sciences Centre on Friday, July 27 from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
This project is managed by UBC Okanagan Project Services.
July 28: John Hindle Drive closure in effect
UBC Okanagan has been notified that John Hindle Drive between Alumni Avenue and Hollywood Road will be closed from Saturday, July 28 at 7 a.m. until approximately mid-August.
This road closure is required to allow widening of the existing John Hindle Drive roadway and construction of multi-use paths.
Pedestrians and cyclists are advised to follow the temporary signage as a guide for safe access between Academy Hill residences or Aberdeen Hall Preparatory School and the UBC Okanagan campus.
Motorists are advised that access to Alumni Avenue will be available via University Way, and access to all driveways and parking lots on Alumni Avenue will remain open.
This project is managed by the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure in consultation with UBC.
