Construction Updates & Visitor Details

As you are most likely aware, a portion of Gastown will be under construction to renew aging streets and infrastructure, which will have a large impact on vehicle circulation beginning on March 2, 2024. You can learn all about it on the MyGastown.org website.

Traffic Changes:

  • Vehicles cannot travel through Maple Tree Square, but pedestrian and cycling access will be retained.
  • Traffic detours for traffic will be in place at Powell Street and Main Street.
  • Westbound through-traffic cannot continue past Main Street to Powell Street. All traffic will need to turn right or left at Main Street.
  • Powell Street between Columbia Street and Harbour Light Alley will be local access only.
  • Alexander Street, east of Maple Tree Square, will be made two-way and is the only eastern access point into the neighbourhood.
  • Columbia Street will be converted to a two-way street between Powell Street and Hastings Street.
  • Cordova, Cambie, and Abbott Streets will not be impacted during the construction period.

The Gastown Business Improvement Association is offering weekly FREE PARKING! Learn more at gastown.org/gastownparking.

We are excited to kick start this patio season real soon!
