Road and Bridge Closures for July 1st Celebrations

June 22, 2017

Thousands of people will be at the Canada Day festivities, and road closures will allow safe travel for crowds enjoying the July 1st Parade and activities at Lewis and Simms Parks. 

July 1st Road Closures:

9:00 am to 12:30 pm: 5th Street from Lake Trail Road to Ryan Road (including the 5th Street bridge) will be closed to vehicle traffic for the Canada Day Parade.

12:30 pm to 4:00 pm: 5th Street from Cliffe Avenue to Comox Road (including the 5th Street bridge) will be closed for Canada Day festivities.

Vehicles will need to detour around the parade and celebration route, and will not be able to cross 5th Street within the closure area. Plan an alternate route and leave extra time to compensate for heavier traffic on the 17th Street Bridge. We thank you for your cooperation and patience.
