PAW Centre construction pedestrian & traffic impacts

Pedestrian Impacts

Due to concerns for pedestrian safety around the PAW Centre construction site, the sidewalks directly beside the site have been closed. Please refer to the map below for building access points, pedestrian routes and traffic impacts.

Traffic Impacts
The metered parking/drop off area on the west side of 114 Street (just north of 87 Ave) is no longer available for pedestrian drop off. The alternate drop-off locations are the 112 Street turnaround, the Jubilee Car Park drop-off zone, and the Stadium Car Park/General Services loop along 116 Street.

Please note that 114 Street, north of 87 Avenue is only open to traffic accessing Education Car Park and St. Joseph’s College parking. All other vehicular traffic must find alternate routes.

Important safety reminders for pedestrians in the area:

  • Always follow instructions from construction personnel, including flag  persons.
  • Obey construction and way finding signs at all times.
  • Use designated passages when walking near construction; never take shortcuts.
  • Never enter a construction site or interfere with construction operations.
  • If you see an unsafe condition, please advise the nearest construction personnel immediately.


As the project progresses other changes to traffic, pedestrian crossings and building access points may be necessary. Facilities and Operations will make every effort to provide as much notice as possible. The anticipated completion date for the project is fall 2014.
