This work is part of a BC Hydro utilities relocation project at the intersection Grant McConachie Way and Templeton Street and is in preparation for construction of McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Centre Phase II.

Travelers are advised to leave extra time to get to and from the airport to make sure they arrive on time.

There are other options besides driving, including the Canada Line which is a short 26-minute train ride from downtown Vancouver.
