To accommodate construction on the Whoop-Up Drive twinning project, Coalbanks Gate West between Whoop-Up Drive and the Keystone Terrace/Silkstone Road intersection will be closed for approximately one month.
This closure will begin Monday, June 5 and is expected to last four weeks, weather permitting. This closure is necessary to widen the intersection and install traffic lights for the new four-lane road. Pedestrian access across Whoop-Up Drive will be maintained while this construction is occurring.
During this road closure, motorists accessing Whoop-Up Drive will be detoured east via Silkstone Road West, Coalbanks Link West and Metis Trail. Whoop-Up Drive will remain open, and access to Copperwood will be available via Metis Trail and 30 Street West.
