The next phase of construction on the University Drive Twinning project is scheduled to begin, weather permitting, on August 6, 2019 and remain in place for eight weeks. In this phase, the RiverStone Blvd intersection will re-open and work will move south to the University Drive and Grand River Blvd / Rocky Mtn. Blvd W intersection.
To complete this phase, the east leg of the intersection will be closed for this duration. Northbound and southbound traffic on University Dr W will not be impacted. The work will involve an intersection expansion and the installation of underground utilities.
Residents in RiverStone, are asked to use RiverStone Blvd W or Riverglen Link W to access University Drive W.
The mid-block pedestrian crossing will be relocated closer to Grand River Blvd W prior to school starting on September 3, 2019.
While the Grand River Blvd intersection is closed, crews will complete the paving of Grand River Blvd which was part the City's 2019 milling and paving program. This is expected to begin on Tuesday, August 7 and be completed by Monday, August 12.
