Major project starts on section of Idylwyld Drive

For immediate release: June 18, 2018 - 5:00am

Major improvement work starts today on a key stretch of Idylwyld Drive, between 33rd and 39th streets. Improvements will include road resurfacing as well as water and sewer upgrades.

To reduce the impact on road users, construction will be phased so that at least one lane of Idylwyld Drive will remain open in both directions at all times. Some of the most intensive work will also be done on weekends. Even with these accommodations, the City is advising residents to expect delays or to choose an alternate route if possible.

Bus routes along the construction route may also be affected throughout the project. During construction, residents are advised to check the posted signage for alternate bus stop locations or to check the app called Transit.

This project is expected to last about three weeks provided there are no unforeseen circumstances or weather concerns.

For updates on construction projects anytime, refer to the Road Restrictions and Construction Projects interactive map. Road users are reminded to reduce speeds, stay alert and mind posted signage and barriers when encountering a construction zone.
