New detour Thursday for University Drive twinning

By Jensen, Randy on May 27, 2020.


The next phase of construction for the University Drive Twinning project is scheduled to begin on Thursday, weather permitting.

Traffic on University Drive between Grand River Blvd West and the SunRidge roundabout will be diverted to the two newly constructed lanes, maintaining two way traffic. The existing lanes will be closed for the next phase of roundabout construction. A pedestrian detour will be in place to keep workers and the public safe.

This stage is expected to be completed by June 20, weather permitting.

Both lanes of traffic on RiverGlen Link West, east of the SunRidge roundabout, will reopened for this phase of the construction.

University Drive West is being twinned from north of Stadium Drive West to south of SunRidge Boulevard West to increase the roadway’s capacity for handling increasing traffic volumes. Future stages of work will involve additional partial intersection closures and additional PSAs will be issued in advance of these stages.
