Temporary Closure of the South Passenger Pick-up and Drop-off Area
at the Coquitlam Central West Coast Express Station
As part of ongoing construction to restore the roadway at the Coquitlam Central West Coast Express station, the south passenger pick-up and drop-off area will be closed for approximately four weeks starting June 1. While this closure is in effect, drivers must temporarily use the north passenger pick-up and drop-off area (as shown on the graphic below).
This is the final stage in the road restoration work and crews will then restore access between the main parking lot and the south passenger pick-up and drop-off area.
What to Expect:
Starting on June 1, and continuing for approximately one month, crews will be restoring the south passenger pick-up and drop-off area to its original configuration. Transit users should be mindful that the majority of the construction activity will be underway daily from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. and will include excavation, concrete pouring, material hauling and the use of heavy machinery. Some nighttime work may be required.
The pedestrian walkway to the west of the passenger pick-up and drop-off area will remain closed as part of the overall reconstruction of the roadway planned for this area. Pedestrians will continue to be detoured to the east (as shown on the graphic below).
Drivers and Passengers Access to the West Coast Express (WCE) station from Lougheed Highway will not be available during this phase of construction:.
Drivers picking-up and/or dropping off passengers at the Coquitlam Central Station Transit Exchange or West Coast Express station must use the north passenger pick-up and drop-off area (shown on the graphic on page two) while this closure is in effect. The north passenger pick-up and drop-off is accessible from Mariner Way.
For the safety of all workers, drivers and pedestrians, please follow the instructions of traffic control personnel and posted signs while construction is underway.
When the reconstruction of the roadway for the entire area is complete, the south passenger pick-up and drop-off area accessible from Lougheed Highway will re-open and the vehicle connection between the main parking lot and the south passenger pick-up and drop off area will be reinstated in July 2015. The pedestrian pathway to the west will also be reinstated. Drivers, transit and WCE users should watch for changeable message signs and directional signage that will include the date as to when the passenger pick-up and drop-off, roadway and pedestrian paths will re-open.
