Downtown Road Closures Coming Up this week (January 25th - 29th)

Although there have been a few road closures downtown so far (abbott st & quebec) I personally havent really noticed a delay (yet) to get in or out of the Downtown core. With new road closures starting tomorrow (01/27/2010) then more on Friday (01/29/2010) I thought it would be a good idea to let you know when and where roads will be closed so you can plan your trip downtown beforehand. Below is the information I copied from the City of Vancouver website that gives all the dates and locations of the upcoming closures.

please click (or copy and paste) the above link which will direct you to the City of Vancouver's website which has more information and a detailed map of the road closures.

Good luck to you all, and enjoy the games! (and remember, there will be alot of gridlock and tourists about; take a big breath and keep your cool when driving around during  the games)
