An exciting milestone for the Commercial–Broadway Station Upgrades! Starting on September 15, construction begins for the new overhead pedestrian walkway across Broadway.
During the construction period, from September 15 through October 1, access to the station and platforms will not change. However, the 9 and 99 bus stops will be temporarily relocated along Broadway.
Be on the lookout for signs like these telling you where to board your bus! Passengers may be required to cross the street to catch their bus.
This phase of work includes using two, 270-tonne cranes to lift and place 30,000-pound steel trusses into place to support the new overhead walkway – whoa!
There will be periodic westbound lane closures on Broadway to position cranes and stage vehicles, equipment and materials, resulting in minor detours for 9 and 99 and delays for vehicles using Broadway. As well, SkyTrain passengers can expect trains to use one track in both directions around the area where work is happening during key times.
A full road closure on Broadway is planned for Saturday, September 30 and Sunday, October 1. We encourage vehicle traffic to avoid this area as detours will be in effect and will result in delays.
We thank everyone for their patience as we complete these much-needed upgrades to Commercial–Broadway Station.
