The next phase of construction for the University Drive Twinning project is scheduled to begin today.
Road work will be taking place along the entire project limits to complete the final phase of paving. This work will be completed in two stages and take seven days, weather permitting, the City said in a news release.
Stage 1, southbound lanes, starts today and is to be completed by Tuedsay.
Stage 2, northbound lanes, will start on Wednesday and is to be completed by next Friday
Traffic will be switched to the opposing lanes during each stage. Motorists are advised to drive with caution in the area and to follow all construction and detour signs.
Required detours will be set up to accommodate each intersection closure.
Pedestrian traffic will be accommodated at Grand River Boulevard West for students at the beginning and end of the school day and City Transit will accommodate bus routes accordingly.
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.
