The new route of the Remembrance Day parade set for Nov. 11 along with adjacent road closures in Sardis.

Chilliwack and Sardis Remembrance Day road closures

Parade route downtown is as usual but for Sardis there are changes

Chilliwack residents are reminded of various road closures Saturday for Remembrance Day ceremonies both downtown and in Sardis.

Road closures will be in effect from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Nov. 11.

The Sardis Remembrance Day procession route has changed for 2017. Formerly running from the Legion on Vedder Road to All Sappers Memorial Park, this year it will run along Keith Wilson Road from Dieppe Street/Garrison Boulevard east to Vedder Road ending as usual at All Sappers Memorial Park.

Those short stretches of road will be the only strict closures, but other stretches in the area will be closed, only open to local traffic. This includes Keith Wilson from Tyson Road to Dieppe Steet, Vedder Road from All Sappers to Petawawa Road, Vedder from Keith Wilson to Thomas Road, and the stretch of Keith Wilson east of Vedder to the Tzeachten Reserve.

The downtown route will be the same as it has been in previous years. The section of Main Street from Kipp Avenue to the Cenotaph, along with the short stretch of Yale Road and Spadina Avenue around the Chilliwack Museum and Cenotaph property, will be closed from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The stretch of Spadina Avenue from Corbould Street to Main Street will be closed from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. for the parade route.
