Upcoming Road Closures
During the weekend of October 24th, East 3rd will be closed to allow crews to safely pour the bridge deck for the new Spirit Trail Overpass. Once East 3rd is open, Low Level Road will close so that a large crane can be placed on the road to install a suspension bridge deck in Moodyville Park.
Full Road Closure on East 3rd from Queensbury Avenue to Kennard Avenue
9 p.m. on Friday, October 24th to 9 a.m. on Saturday, October 25th
Full Road Closure on Low Level Road from St. Andrews Avenue to Cotton Drive
9 a.m. on Saturday, October 25th to 5 a.m. on Monday, October 27th
Detour routes will be clearly marked and motorists are advised to exercise caution in the area and to follow the directions of traffic personnel and road signs. Emergency and Port access will be maintained at all times.
With the October 9, 2014 opening of the eastbound traffic lane, the new Low Level Road alignment is fully operational to two-way vehicular traffic. This marks a major milestone towards Project completion.
The project is now over 90% complete and has taken a large step forward in delivering on one of its key objectives - providing improved and safer access for the travellingn public. Some Project elements such as Spirit Trail completion, landscaping and public art installation will continue until the end of the year.

About the project
The Low Level Road Project is designed to enhance rail and port operations as international trade continues to grow and to address long-standing community safety and traffic congestion challenges in the area.
These improvements are identified as part of a broader investment in the North Shore Trade Area on behalf of the Government of Canada, the Province of British Columbia, Port Metro Vancouver, TransLink, the City and District of North Vancouver and the private sector.
Development of the project involved extensive community consultation and information sharing.
