April 30, 2018: Minor traffic control measures now in place
As a result of revised priorities, the date for the mechanical demolition of the Mercer Park skateboard park has been moved to May 7. In moving forward with site excavation, traffic management plans are now in place. Local drivers are seeing construction notices and flagging on Sixth Street controlling exits around the site as trucks turning (right only) leave the site. Expect some minor delays as measures ensure vehicle traffic can safely exit the site.
In addition, signage is in place on Eighth Street and Eighth Avenue clarifying parking arrangements for patrons of Massey Theatre. Patrons with mobility issues are directed to clearly designated stalls behind the Massey Theatre; the general public is directed to appropriate parking stalls in the New Westminster Secondary School parking lot to the North.
