Drainage repair requires closure of outside lane along westbound Whoop-Up Drive

‚ÄčIn an effort to coordinate work on westbound Whoop-Up Drive, the outside lane from 4 Street South to the bottom of the westbound Scenic Drive off-ramp will be closed starting Monday, August 26 so crews can work on drainage ditch repairs.

The bridge rehabilitation and drainage ditch repair projects are occurring at the same time to utilize the existing speed reduction and avoid extending lane closures to later this fall.

The posted speed limit will be 50 km/h along both lane closures.

This work is expected to wrap up by mid-September.

Motorists are advised to expect traffic delays and consider alternate routes for their commute. Please drive with caution and follow posted detours.
