Mondays take some adjusting to for a lot of us, and that’s especially true if you use the C8 in New Westminister. Starting today, the southbound closure of the Quayside Overpass is closed, so C8 service at the following stops will be discontinued:
59848 NB Carnarvon St NS Quayside Dr
59008 WB Quayside Dr NS Laguna Ct
58746 WB Quayside Dr FS Reliance Ct
58745 WB Quayside Dr FS K De K Ct
The southbound detour routing will begin at WB Columbia St at 10 St then via WB Columbia St, NB Stewardson Way, WB 3 Av Overpass, EB Quayside Dr to regular route beginning again at Quayside Dr at Renaissance Square. While on detour, there will be no local pick up/drop off on the detour portion of the route.
According to our colleagues at the Coast Mountain Bus Company, the construction work is anticipated to take approximately 3 weeks to complete. The work will require the restriction of vehicle traffic to one lane northbound (from Quayside to Carnarvon). Southbound traffic will be detoured via the Third Avenue Overpass or the at-grade crossing at Begbie Street. A temporary sidewalk will be constructed to ensure unimpeded pedestrian access for the duration of construction activity.
