Microsurfacing on Idylwyld Drive will require road restrictions

For immediate release: August 17, 2018 - 11:12am

This weekend, crews will be micro-surfacing sections of Idylwyld Drive. To limit the impact to road users, these large scale roadway projects are completed overnight during the summer months when traffic volumes are lighter.

Saturday night, crews will close northbound lanes on Idylwyld Drive between the 51st Street exit ramp and 60th Street. Access to the 51st Street exit ramp will be maintained during this work, but there will be no access to the Highway 16 exit ramp. Detour signs will direct traffic around the construction zone at Marquis Drive and back onto Highway 16.   

Sunday night, crews will close southbound lanes of Idylwyld Drive between Marquis Drive and the Avenue C off ramp. Southbound traffic on Highway 16 will be detoured onto Marquis Drive around the construction zone and back onto Idylwyld Drive. The Avenue C  ramp will remain open.

Other lane reductions will be in place around these construction zones.

Work on both projects will start after 7 p.m. with roadways reopening before 7 a.m. the next day, weather permitting and barring any unforeseen circumstances.

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.
