University Drive Twinning Update

June 11, 2019

Construction to close access to and from RiverStone Blvd at University Dr

The next phase of construction on the University Drive twinning project is expected to begin on Thursday, June 13 and will restrict access in and out of the RiverStone neighbourhood via RiverStone Blvd. Residents are asked to use Grand River Blvd W to access University Drive W. while this closure is in place.

Weather permitting, this work is expected to be complete by July 11, 2019.  

This phase of the project will involve an intersection expansion and the installation of underground utilities at University Drive and RiverStone Blvd W / Macleod Drive W.  The east side of the intersection will be closed for this work but north and southbound traffic will continue using the west lanes (see attached map).

The University Dr. twinning project will see four lanes of traffic constructed from north of Community Stadium to south of the SunRidge roundabout. This important transportation initiative will increase the road's capacity to handle growing traffic volumes in the area.
