Upcoming lane closures on Grant McConachie Way

The public is advised that there are lane closures in both directions along a portion of Grant McConachie Way near Aurora Road starting September 13 through September 16. On these days, traffic will be reduced to one lane each way from approximately 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Lane closures are making way for regular road repairs and may increase travel time to and from the airport.

We encourage everyone to have a transportation plan before heading to the airport and leave themselves extra time. Travellers are reminded that there are many options for getting to the airport, including the Canada Line which is a short 26-minute train ride from downtown Vancouver.

Here are some tips for heading to the airport:

  • If driving, leave extra time getting to the airport, whether flying out or picking up a loved one
  • Consider taking the Canada Line, a short 26-minute train ride from downtown Vancouver
  • Reminder for those planning to plan to park at YVR that there have been recent parking changes. We recommend having a parking plan and reserving your spot in advance at to guarantee your preferred lot.
