Construction and Transit Updates

The UBC campus is always growing and changing so it's common to encounter construction and road closures. The map below will help you locate existing construction areas and road closures at UBC Vancouver. It is updated regularly to make navigating campus easier.

Road closures and projects as of April 8, 2022.

Wesbrook Mall Phase 3 - April 11, 2022 to Sept 30, 2022

The Wesbrook Mall corridor from 16th Avenue to Chancellor Boulevard is being upgraded in phases to repair the condition of the roadway and enhance safety and user experience for all modes of transportation. Construction will begin in April 2022 and will continue until September 30th, 2022. This work will result in road and sidewalk closures. These upgrades will result in:

  • A new roundabout replacing the existing intersection of Wesbrook Mall and Chancellor Boulevard.
  • Pedestrian crossings across all sides of the intersection.
  • A continuous bike lane in the southbound direction.
  • An improved condition for cyclists in the northbound direction.

Visit the project page for details about the work and affected areas. 

Brock Commons Phase 2 - Ongoing to 2023

The second phase of Brock Commons is underway on Walter Gage Road just east of East Mall. The main impact of this project is the full closure of Walter Gage Road between East Mall and Tallwood House. The road closure will be expanded in the coming months to extend further east to the east side of Tallwood House for District Energy System expansion. 

Upcoming Construction on Campus

There are a few major upcoming construction projects including the new Gateway building at University Boulevard and Wesbrook Mall, the new UBC Recreation building on Student Union Boulevard as well as the new School of Biomedical Engineering building on University Boulevard at the old D.H. Copp site. More details will be made available of these projects once more details and dates are confirmed.
