Lane Reductions for Paving on University Drive

​The next phase of construction for the University Drive Twinning project is scheduled to begin on Saturday, September 12.

Road work will be taking place along the entire project limits to complete the final phase of paving. This work will be completed in two stages and take seven days, weather permitting.

Stage 1 – southbound lanes

  • Starting on September 12
  • To be completed on September 15

Stage 2 – northbound lanes

  • Starting on September 16
  • To be completed on September 18

Traffic will be switched to the opposing lanes during each stage. Motorists are advised to drive with caution in the area and to follow all construction and detour signs.

Required detours will be set up to accommodate each intersection closure.

Pedestrian traffic will be accommodated at Grand River Blvd. for students at the beginning and end of the school day. 

City Transit will accommodate bus routes accordingly.

University Drive West is being twinned from north of Stadium Drive West to south of SunRidge Boulevard West to increase the roadway's capacity for handling increasing traffic volumes. For more information on these projects visit: https://getinvolvedlethbridge.ca/university-drive-twinning
