Broadway Station elevator closes for three months starting June 1

You may have seen the signs up at Broadway Station already (and the note in the print Buzzer!), but here’s a friendly reminder to all the Broadway Station elevator users out there.

As part of the Broadway SkyTrain Station upgrades, the elevator at Broadway Station will be taken out of service next Monday, June 1 for approximately three months.

If you need an elevator, please go to Commercial Drive Station across the street, take the elevator there, and then cross over to Broadway Station on the platform level.

We’re really sorry about this inconvenience, but when construction is complete, the entire station will be easier to access!

    It seems to me that the station upgrade is way behind schedule. When the project was first announced the north elevator wasn’t supposed to be decommissioned until the new south elevator was operational. A direct quote from the overview document:
    In spring of 2009, we’ll open the new south side and then start construction on the north side (including the removal of the elevator).

    Hey David,
    So I’ve asked and in fact, I’m told the project is actually ahead of schedule! There were just some site conditions that required a redesign of the new elevator/escalator/stairs area, which shifted things on the construction schedule around. So, ultimately the early removal of the elevator plus continuing work on the south side of the station actually gives us an earlier completion date, roughly fall 2009 instead of the end of 2009.

    The hand made “Do Not Run” signs put in place today at the newly narrowed platform probably should be posted in languages in addition to English.
