Construction Updates

1. Road closure - Mauretania Road West to 30 Street West

Starting Wednesday, July 12, the west end of Whoop-Up Drive will be closed for road construction between Mauretania Road West and 30 Street West.  

This closure is expected to remain in effect until work is complete in August 2017, weather permitting.

Motorists are advised to drive with caution in this area and to follow posted detours.


2. Road closure - Métis Trail West

Starting Wednesday, July 5, Métis Trail West will be closed between Whoop-Up Drive and Coalbanks Link West to accommodate construction on the Whoop-Up Drive twinning project.

This closure is necessary for construction of a new roundabout at the intersection of Métis Trail West and Whoop-Up Drive and is expected to last approximately 8 weeks, weather permitting. The closure will coincide with the completion of construction and reopening of the intersection of Coalbanks Gate West and Whoop-Up Drive.

During this closure, traffic will be detoured via Silkstone Road West and Coalbanks Gate West. Whoop-Up Drive will remain open, and access to Copperwood will be available via Coalbanks Gate as well as 30 Street West. In addition, a short detour will be in place along Whoop-Up Drive at the Métis Trail intersection. Pedestrian access along Whoop-Up Drive will be maintained while this construction is occurring.
