The next phase of construction on the University Drive Twinning project is scheduled to begin Thursday, April 23, weather permitting.
RiverGlen Link will be closed to westbound traffic on April 23 for the first phase of construction on the University Dr and SunRidge Blvd roundabout. This work will include the widening of the northeast corner to accommodate the eventual two lane roundabout at this location. This detour is expected to take two weeks, weather permitting. A pedestrian detour will be in place to keep the workers and public safe. This work will not impact access to the SunRidge neighbourhood.
On April 27, traffic will be down to a single southbound lane on University Dr. W. for the installation of the underground electrical duct bank at McLeod Dr. W. The northbound lanes will not be impacted with the southbound lane closure anticipated to be in place for one week, weather permitting.
Future stages of work will involve partial intersection closures throughout the spring/summer and information will be provided to the public in advance of these stages. This project is anticipated to be completed by late 2020.
University Drive W is being twinned from north of Stadium Drive W to south of SunRidge Blvd W to increase the roadway's capacity for handling increasing traffic volumes.
