Closure of intersection at McMaster Blvd. W. and Macleod Dr. W.

​Starting on Wednesday, May 22 at 9 a.m., the intersection at McMaster Blvd. W., Macleod Dr. W. and Mt. Burke Blvd. W. will be closed to support the construction of Great Bear Blvd. W.

Traffic will be detoured for approximately one month.

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.

The Great Bear Blvd intersection closure is planned for this time to stay ahead of future construction on the south portion of University Drive in July and August, which will detour motorists to Rocky Mountain Blvd. The new Great Bear Blvd. intersection will also support traffic volumes from that detour.

The Great Bear Blvd. road project must be completed by Fall to facilitate the construction of Fire Station #5, which will be located in the Watermark neighbourhood.  

Motorists in these areas are thanked for their patience and reminded to plan for extra time on their daily commutes.
