Updated November 25, 2022

There will be a change to the section of Raab Boulevard that is temporarily closed on the Bayview campus, that will result in changes to access and routes on campus over the next week.

Raab Blvd is the road running west – east in between Parking Garages 1 and 2 (PG1 & PG2) along past the Veterans Centre and through to Veterans Hill Trail.

During scheduled construction, the road will be shut down to vehicle and bus traffic, and pedestrian traffic will be re-routed.

Please take note of the following changes:

  • Construction to the west side of Raab Boulevard (the part of the road that has been temporarily closed until now) will be complete and re-open the evening of Saturday November 26.
  • Construction to the east side of Raab Boulevard (picking up from where the road construction ended on the east side) will begin on Monday November 28 and close off the east side of Raab Blvd from K wing (at the base of the ramp from M1 and next to H wing) to Veterans Hill Trail from Monday November 28 to Sunday December 4th.

Please note the following changes and impact to access/routes:
