Construction of Great Bear Blvd W. has started, setting up access to future Fire Station #5

Road construction has started on Great Bear Blvd. W., formerly known as the future portion of Macleod Dr. W. This road is located west of McMaster Blvd. W. and Macleod Dr. W. 

The completion of this project will require the following road closures:

  • Partial lane reductions around the intersection of McMaster Blvd. W. / Macleod Dr. W.  starting on Monday, April 15. Traffic flow will be maintained.
  • Full intersection closure of McMaster Blvd. W. / Macleod Dr. W. starting near the end of April for intersection improvements. Traffic will be detoured for approximately one month.
  • Closure of the westbound lane along Macleod Dr. W. from University Dr. W. to McMaster Blvd. W. will also be required to construct electrical utility infrastructure. Westbound traffic will be detoured for two weeks.

This road project is critical to the construction of Fire Station #5, which will be located in the Watermark neighbourhood.

The Great Bear Blvd. W. project will consist of installing utility infrastructure, road construction and pathway development.

We recognize the Great Bear Blvd. project and University Drive Twinning project will have a significant impact on westside commuters. We are coordinating detours and construction to minimize disruption to traffic.

Construction of Fire Station #5 will start in the summer 2019 with completion set for fall 2020.
