Whoop-Up Drive Interchange Improvements Functional Planning Study and Concept Design

​Status​Active
​Timeline​2016-17
​Location​Whoop-Up Drive/University Drive and Whoop-Up Drive/Scenic Drive

Project Description

With traffic growth on the Whoop Up Drive, it is expected that major capacity issues will arise on the two interchanges at the east and west ends of the river crossing. With City Council wanting to delay a third river crossing as long as practical, Whoop Up Drive remains the primary route within our transportation system connecting east and west Lethbridge.

The Transportation Master Plan has indicated that there is adequate capacity along Whoop Up Drive; however, the interchanges at Scenic Drive and University Drive currently experience some capacity and congestion issues which will exacerbate in future unless improvements are made.  Over the next five to ten years some improvements are thought to be necessary. This study will identify the improvements most practical to increase traffic flow with a reasonable investment.
