Rain or shine, there’s always a buzzing atmosphere about Commercial Drive.

And if you’ve visited the neighbourhood recently, you’re likely aware of the road closure on East 1st Avenue. This is because¬†FortisBC¬†is¬†upgrading the gas line¬†that runs from Coquitlam to Vancouver.

The upgrades are underway because the gas lines have been in operation for almost 70 years. Upgrading the gas line will help ensure that the more than 210,000 customers in Metro Vancouver continue to receive natural gas every day. This road closure will only be in place until the end of August, and businesses remain open throughout construction anyway, so it shouldn’t stop you from visiting one of the most magnetic neighbourhoods in the city.

We’ve partnered with FortisBC and Commercial Drive businesses to give one lucky reader the chance to experience the best of dining and shopping on this iconic street. Enter the contest below for your chance to win!
