Traffic Events

BCIT campuses are occasionally impacted by traffic events which restrict the regular accessibility to the parking lots. In an effort to minimize the delays BCIT provides alternative routes and directions to our commuter community.

Burnaby Campus

Goard Way Infrastructure Renewal Project

Goard Way houses significant underground utilities connections that service the southern half of the Burnaby Campus. BC Hydro feeder lines run from Willingdon Avenue to the existing receiving stations located on the south side of Goard Way, adjacent to Building SE2. Both the feeder lines and the receiving station are approximately 50 years old and have reached the end of serviceable life.

The primary objective for this project is to replace the main BC Hydro feeder, receiving station, and substations. The secondary objective for this project is renewal of end of serviceable life storm and water services running under Goard Way, parallel with the electrical services.

The project is scheduled from November 2014 to October 2015. During this period project updates will be provided to the BCIT community.

Downtown campus

The City of Vancouver has designated Dunsmuir Street as a designated bike lane route. This designation prohibits motor vehicles making a right hand turn from Dunsmuir to Seymour. Commuters need to plan ahead. A recommended alternative is to turn south off Dunsmuir to West Georgia and then complete your right hand turn onto Seymour Street from West Georgia.

Designated streets permitting south bound traffic are:
