Motorists traveling in the area of McMaster Blvd. W., Macleod Dr. W. and Mt. Burke Blvd. W. will access new temporary lanes around the Great Bear Blvd. construction area starting Thursday, June 13.
These temporary lanes will allow for north and south traffic to continue on McMaster Blvd., preventing added congestion on University Drive which is also under construction. The new temporary lanes can also accommodate emergency vehicles when needed.
This change may cause a slow-down in traffic through the area. Motorists are asked to plan for extra time when traveling through the construction and to drive with caution.
Pedestrian access will also be accommodated through this construction area. Residents are asked to carefully follow the posted signage to ensure the safety of both workers and pedestrians.
The temporary lanes are anticipated to be in place for approximately one month.
This road project is required for the construction of the new Fire Station #5 in west Lethbridge. For more information on visit: www.lethbridge.ca/firestation5.
