Road construction is scheduled to begin on April 23, 2019 on the University Drive Twinning project.
This will include the expansion of University Drive to two lanes in each direction from north of the Community Stadium access to south of the SunRidge roundabout. This work will expand capacity helping to manage increasing traffic volumes in this area.
The initial stage of construction of the new northbound lanes will not require road closures as it will take place off University Drive in the large grassed boulevard east of the road. Motorists may however experience temporary traffic interruptions and reduced speed limits are possible.
Future stages will involve partial and/or complete intersection closures. Additional information will be issued in advance of these stages. The entire project is scheduled to be complete in the fall of 2020.
Recognizing the University Twinning project and the construction of Great Bear Blvd. will have a significant impact on westside commuters, the City is coordinating detours and construction to minimize disruption to traffic.
