ACCESS TO 1292 PARADE LOCATION UPDATE

The work around the General Sir Arthur Currie Building is still continuing. The access to the parking lot and the entrance to the building has been constantly changing this summer. We are still seeing that access will continue to be via the north side of the parking lot.

There is now only one gate. It to the west of the first gate and directly in front of the  General Waters Building (smaller building to the west with the flags). This will be our access point over the next 4-6 weeks based on the work being done on the new overpass and Caen Rd. Access may require some detours that are created on a daily basis.

There are two roads for access to these gates. The main road with the 4 way stop signs and then a small road between the buildings just west of the 4 way intersection. Referring to the map link blow the road is the one that is highlighted yellow. It shows as a one way but due to the construction it is now a two way.

We appreciate your patience as this work is completed. We anticipate that things will be more fluid by early November based on updates we have been given.

Currie Build Access - Updated 18-Jun-16
