Wanuskewin Road north of 71st Street reduced to two lanes starting Monday

For immediate release: May 24, 2019 - 1:00pm

The City is twinning a section of Wanuskewin Road north of the 71st Street intersection beginning on Monday, May 27 at 9:00 a.m. Wanuskewin Road will remain open with two-way traffic maintained in the northbound lanes. The project is expected to take approximately five months to complete, weather permitting and barring any unforeseen circumstances. 

Twinning will begin at 71st Street and continue 650 meters to the north where 72nd Street will eventually be constructed. 

The speed limit within the work zone will be reduced to 60 km/h. Drivers must slow down and respect all work zones, including mobile work zones, flashing lights, barriers and workers outside of equipment. Thank you for your patience and cooperation. 
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.
