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.
