Road Closures

Every year, crowds of people flock to downtown Port Coquitlam for the Rotary May Day Parade, the May Day Mile Fun Run and the Leigh Square Community Block Party. But, for those that live in the area, the influx of people and abundance of street closures can make getting around a little tricky. 

 **There will be no on-street parking during these times**

The Coast Meridian Overpass is OPEN to traffic as usual.
