The McOrmond Drive and College Drive interchange, which has been under construction since the spring of 2017, is now open. All traffic movements are fully operational.

Construction of an interchange at Boychuk Drive and Highway 16 also got underway in 2017 and is expected to be complete this summer.

Both intersections had been experiencing rapid increases in traffic volume, delays and collisions as development continued in surrounding neighbourhoods. The most effective way to reduce the issues was to build the two new interchanges.

Due to the lack of precipitation and above average temperatures this week, park areas have begun to receive irrigation ahead of the City’s annual June 1 activation date. 

Based on the approved budget, City parks will receive up to 25mm (1 inch) of water per week until August 31, 2019.  If natural precipitation occurs, adjustments will be made. 

It is important to remember even with the budgeted regular watering program, some irrigated turf areas may remain brown until favourable weather conditions return.
