Construction Updates

University Drive Temporary Closure

The section of University Drive in front of the Life Sciences Building will remain completely closed to vehicle traffic until Monday, August 14, 2017. The equivalent section of the pedestrian pathway will be covered and remain open during that time. Library Road is open to help ease traffic congestion on campus.

Mackenzie Courtyard (Quad) Improvements

Construction to renew the Mackenzie Quad and waterproof adjacent tunnels is underway. Work involves excavation and back-filling and users should expect disruption in the form of noise and dust from the courtyard during regular hours. Work is expected to be completed in early September and the entire quad area will be closed during this construction.

Pedestrian Overpass at Athletics

Construction has begun to renew the pedestrian overpass between Athletics and the Gymnasium. This work includes the complete replacement of walls, the roof and the floor of the link. Please note: for anyone who is participating in programs that take place in the Norm Fenn gym, please enter through the Ice House.

Bus Shelter Expansion at Minto CASE

Work continues on the first phase of the expansion of the bus shelter located at the OC Transpo bus stop at Minto CASE. Until approximately July 14, work will involve the removal of the existing bus shelter and preparation of the area for the installation of the new shelter. When the construction is completed in early November 2017, the new bus shelter will be larger and will be heated.
