Deer Lake Avenue Road Closures:

To promote public safety and reduce traffic gridlock, the Burnaby RCMP will implement the following traffic plan:

From 4:00 to 9:30pm, Deer Lake Ave. will be closed to eastbound traffic between Deer Lake Parkway and Sperling Ave. Bus service will continue in both directions during this time. Traffic coming onto Deer Lake Ave. will enter at Canada Way and Deer Lake Ave. (by the Burnaby Village Museum) and proceed west with the option to exit at either Century Park Way or Deer Lake Parkway.

From 9:30 to 11:00pm, Deer Lake Ave. will be closed between Deer Lake Parkway and Sperling Ave. During this window, bus service will be interrupted on Deer Lake Ave. and riders will have to walk north to Canada Way bus stops. Translink will post “interruption of service” notices on Deer Lake Ave. bus stops.


Drop off:

A Drop-off zone will be designated in the Deer Lake Ave. stalls directly across from the North Lot at the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts until 9:30pm.  Deer Lake Ave will be closed to all traffic between 9:30pm and 11pm.

Handicapped Permit Parking:

For vehicles displaying the official handicapped parking permit (SPARC), limited parking will be available in the Shadbolt Centre’s North Parking lot on a first come first served basis. Vehicles must access this area from the east end of Deer Lake Ave at Canada Way (by Esso gas station).

Motorcycle & Scooter Parking:

Limited parking spaces will be available in the Shadbolt Centre’s North Parking lot for motorcycles and scooters, based on first come, first served basis. Please access westbound from Deer Lake Ave and Canada Way.
