As the latest phase of construction on the University Drive Twinning project wraps up, Grand River Blvd intersection will re-open at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, November 9. Along with this opening, the final two northbound lanes between Grand River Blvd and RiverStone Blvd will also open to traffic.
Although crews initially thought they would wrap up construction at this point, they will be taking the opportunity to complete some underground utility installation.
On Monday November 11, weather permitting, the eastbound lanes of Riverglen Link W will be closed for the installation of underground utilities. Northbound and southbound traffic on University Drive W will not be impacted. This phase of work is anticipated to take two weeks to complete.
The mid-block pedestrian crossing will remain south of the Grand River Blvd W and will be in place until the permanent traffic lights are installed by City of Lethbridge crews.
University Drive W is being twinned from north of Stadium Drive W to south of SunRidge Blvd W to increase the roadway's capacity for handling increasing traffic volumes.
