Ten-day closure on Diefenbaker Drive starts Tuesday

For immediate release: September 24, 2018 - 10:00am

This Tuesday crews will close Diefenbaker Drive between McArthur Lane and Kensington Boulevard to install a raised pedestrian crossing. Work is expected to last 10 days barring weather events or unforeseen circumstances.

Current infrastructure will be removed and a permanent, concrete platformed area will be installed. When complete, this mid-street crossing will allow pedestrians to cross between George H Clare Pond on the north and Bev M Dyck Pond on the south.

Signs will be in place advising drivers of the upcoming road restrictions and guide them around the construction zone.

This construction will also impact Transit routes. Check for Service Alerts on your route on or on your mobile device using the app called Transit.  

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.
