Metis Trail Construction

Our Commitment

The City of Lethbridge and our contractors will minimize traffic delays during construction to the best of our abilities. We thank you​ in advance for your patience.


Updates around University Drive, Heritage Boulevard West and Walsh Drive intersection

This intersection and area improvement is part of the Métis Trail construction project and will support additional traffic from Métis Trail in the future.


April 19, 2018: 
There will be a pathway closure in the southeast corner of University Drive and Heritage Boulevard so crews can relocate an Atco gas line and install a new stormwater vault. Pathway detours will be set up to guide path users around the construction zone. All of the work will take place behind the curbs so there will be no impact to traffic at this time.

The second stage of Métis Trail is now complete and opened to traffic this morning, providing a new direct arterial road link between Whoop-Up Drive and Garry Drive West. This newest section of Métis Trail also provides an additional access to Indian Battle Heights via Blackfoot Boulevard West.
Map of this area.

Meanwhile, construction continues on the northernmost section of Métis Trail, extending north from Garry Drive West. This includes expansion of the intersection at Garry Drive West and construction of the road, stopping short of the existing access into Country Meadows. This section of Métis Trail is expected to open for public use next summer, but all concrete work and a first layer of asphalt are expected to be complete this fall before work shuts down for the winter. A new roundabout to complete the connection to Country Meadows Boulevard West will be constructed in 2018 along with improvements at the Walsh Drive West/University Drive intersection.
