Driving FROM Wesbrook Village you can travel eastbound on SW Marine Drive all the way to Richmond

Driving TO Wesbrook Village during the two-hour road closure will be more challenging.  To avoid delays and long detour routes, it is highly recommended to avoid travel during this period.  If travel is essential, the detour routes available include SW Marine Drive via Dunbar Street or Blenheim Street, or alternatively via West 10th Avenue/University Blvd to Wesbrook Mall.   Note - expect delays crossing West 16th Ave. as traffic will only be let through when there are gaps in between runners.
