NOTICE OF CONSTRUCTION FOR NEW RIVER ROAD AND THE RIVERGREEN PROJECT
Starting January 21st, 2013 and continuing through August 2013, Tybo Contracting Ltd. Will begin construction on the New River Road and the associated underground civil works from Hollybridge Way through Gilbert Road, to River Road, east of the Dinsmore Bridge.
Some traffic delays may result in the area with more extensive work in the intersection occurring at night. We recommend the general public use alternate routes during this time.
Hours of work during the day will be 7am to 6pm with the night work to be announced.
Background: The portion of River Road that runs in front of the Oval, will continue northward in a straight line through Hollybridge to the end of the construction areas there and then will veer to the left and meet up with the current stretch of river road north of the Dinsmore Bridge. The stretch of River Road that currently runs from the Dinsmore to where it veers left onto Hollybridge will become parkland through this process.
How to access the UBC Boathouse:
Heading north on No. 3 Road, turn left at Cambie Road, left at River Road.
Heading south on No. 3 Road, turn right at Cambie Road, left at River Road.
From the Dinsmore Bridge:
The old River Road will be open until the new River Road is open.
Old River Road: coming off the Dinsmore, take your first right at Lansdowne Road, right onto Hollybridge Road. Straight through the stop signs and the road veers left taking you onto River Road.
New River Road stretch: coming off the Dinsmore, take your first right at Lansdowne Road, right onto Hollybridge Road. At the stop signs, turn right onto River Road. After a block or so, it will veer to the left and join the existing River Road section and the Boathouse will be on your left.
