Joint Expansion Replacement Project Update: Traffic Impacts

Level 3 roadway and joint expansion project work

YVR is conducting expansion joint repairs on the roadway and sidewalks on Departures Level 3, spanning from Fairmont Vancouver Airport Hotel at U.S. Departures, to the Graham Clarke Atrium. 

This construction project is scheduled to run from September 11th to October 20th, with work hours primarily from 2:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Drivers and pedestrians are asked to pay special attention to signage and traffic management in the area and can expect the following impacts while the project is ongoing.

  • Lane closures on Departures Level 3 to facilitate the repairs. 
  • Partial closures on the sidewalk along Departures Level 3. Pedestrians are encouraged to use the marked access path that will be available at all times.
  • A temporary relocation of the courtesy shuttle buses. Please follow posted signs to the relocated area for shuttle pick up.
  • Intermittent noise from construction is also expected. 

There will be changing passenger and traffic flows throughout the project. Watch our social media channels for more up-to-date information on the work ahead. During the period of construction, we advise all passengers to leave extra time when coming to the airport. We thank you for your patience as we complete this important maintenance work
