New detour for University Drive twinning

‚ÄčThe next phase of construction for the University Drive Twinning project is scheduled to begin on Saturday, June 13, weather permitting.

Traffic on University Drive West between Grand River Boulevard West and Macleod Drive will be diverted to two-way traffic on the existing northbound lanes. The southbound lanes will be closed for the next phase of construction. A pedestrian detour will be in place to keep workers and the public safe.

This stage is expected to be completed by June 20, weather permitting.

Both lanes of traffic north of the SunRidge roundabout will be reopened for this phase of the construction.

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. Future stages of work will involve additional partial intersection closures and additional PSAs will be issued in advance of these stages.
