The next phase of changes at the Port Moody Transit Exchange and West Coast Express (WCE) station park-and-ride facility will go into effect on Monday, November 4.
As part of the new configuration, the passenger pick-up and drop-off area and TransLink bus loop have shifted. Drivers wishing to access the passenger pick-up and drop-off area must use Spring Street and drive through the parking lot on the northwest corner of Spring Street and Williams Street. To exit the passenger pick-up and drop-off area, drivers will need to go through the parking lot on the northeast corner of Spring Street and Hugh Street (entrance and exit routes shown on the map below in orange). Drivers will no longer have access to the Port Moody Transit Exchange and WCE station and park-and-and-ride facility via Williams Street. Williams Street will be for bus use only.
Signage will be in place to indicate changes to the location of the pick-up and drop-off area and the bus loop for drivers and pedestrians.
Construction fencing will be installed between the passenger pick-up and drop-off area and the bus loop. Please watch for signage directing pedestrians on how to access the bus loop and WCE station platform.
Parking for WCE park-and-ride customers is available in four locations as shown on the map in yellow. WCE customers wishing to use the parking lot on the west side of the park-and-ride facility will continue to use Hugh Street to access this lot. There will be no change to the number of parking stalls available to customers.
Additional changes at the Port Moody Transit Exchange and WCE station are scheduled to occur in the coming months and WCE and transit customers will be notified in advance.
Details of Work:
- Access to the WCE Port Moody Station will be maintained at all times.
- There will be no changes in access to the WCE platform during this phase of construction. The existing WCE station access points are shown on the map in pink.
- Traffic control personnel will be on-site to assist drivers.
- The location of the WCE Train Bus stop will be shifted to the east side of Williams Street just north of Spring Street.
- Cyclists and pedestrians may be stopped on occasion and should watch for traffic control personnel. Once changes to access and the parking lot are complete, crews will begin building the Evergreen Line’s Moody Centre Station. Expect construction-related noise while work is underway.
A key goal of the Evergreen Line Rapid Transit Project is to minimize construction-related disruption and maximize traffic flow and predictability during construction activities. Drivers are asked to watch for construction signs and obey traffic control personnel.
