McOrmond & College Drive Interchange traffic shift

For immediate release: May 9, 2018 - 10:00am
TU18-306

Construction at the College Drive and McOrmond Drive Interchange continues with work on the overhead spans and the placement of bridge decks. This work requires periodic traffic pattern changes over the next three weeks.

Starting Thursday, May 10, 2018, for about 5 days, traffic in the westbound lanes of College Drive will be closed. Westbound traffic will be accommodated in the eastbound lanes.

Traffic patterns will flip twice more throughout this stage of the project which is scheduled to finish by the end of May when full lanes will reopen to traffic.

Road users are reminded a permanent height restriction of 5.5 metres is now in place for College Drive traffic passing underneath the new girders.  The speed limit through this construction site is 60 km/h. Drivers are reminded to expect delays.

Work on the interchange at McOrmond Drive and College Drive began in April of 2017. It is scheduled to open in October 2018.
