As construction winds down on the Lethbridge Regional Park 'n' Ride Transit Terminal, work will begin to repair roads, enhance pedestrian safety and increase traffic control measure around the site.
Residents should be aware that there will be a series of road closures and parking bans to complete this work over the next two months. This will impact the alley between the Post Office and Park 'n' Ride as well as 5 Ave. S between 8 St S. and 7 St. S.
Work will begin in the alley at the northwest corner of the Park 'n' Ride and will continue clockwise around the site. This work is expected to be complete by the end of July.
There will be new signal lights installed at the 5 Ave. S. intersections on both 8 and 7 St. S. These signals are required to accommodate the additional traffic anticipated with the opening of the Park 'n' Ride. To enhance pedestrian safety, the sidewalks will be constructed with 'bulb outs' which is a curb extension to reduce the crossing distance and improves sight lines.
Lethbridge Transit will be rerouted around the construction but the detour will not impact route times or pickup/drop-off locations.
The Lethbridge Regional Park 'n' Ride Transit Terminal will create a vibrant, safe and convenient transit hub in downtown Lethbridge. The facility will provide residents with a comfortable and safe location to access City transit services that is protected from weather and offers amenities such as ticketing and washroom facilities.
Regional connectivity is also a major benefit of the new Park 'n' Ride. This building creates an easy to access location that can connect current and future regional transit services to the Lethbridge Transit system.
This project includes a three level parking structure adding 293 stalls of needed downtown parking. More parking opens up exciting opportunities to develop and grow our downtown core.
The Park 'n' Ride is expected to be operational by early September. For more information on this project visit www.lethbridge.ca/parknride.
