University Crescent Road Reconstruction – Phase 2

University Crescent from Pembina to Chancellor Matheson Rd is undergoing a two year, $9.9 M reconstruction. Phase 1 occurred in 2021 and was a complete reconstruction of both north and south bound University Crescent between Sifton Rd and Chancellor Matheson Rd. During the 2022 construction season, contractors will work on the crescent from Pembina Hwy to Thatcher Dr.

Area residents will be receiving a detailed letter about 2022 construction in the coming months. The 2022 construction work will include:

  • A complete reconstruction of the northbound traffic lane, and extensive rehabilitation work of the southbound traffic lane.

Sidewalk and Active Transportation construction will also occur as part of the road construction:

  • A 3.5 metre multiuse path will be constructed from Pembina Highway to the transit stop just north of Wedgwood Drive.
  • At the transit stop just north of Wedgewood Drive, a 1.5 metre sidewalk will be added alongside the multiuse pathway
  • The 1.5 metre sidewalk and a separate 3.0 metre multiuse path will be constructed south of the transit stop and will continue to Wedgewood Drive.
  • The areas that have sidewalks and the width of multiuse pathway vary due to the amount of land the city owns.

See a visual image of both the north and southbound traffic lanes, and the sidewalk and pathways.

Phase 2 Construction start: TBD

Expected Phase 2 Completion: TBD

Construction Limits: University Crescent from Pembina Hwy to Thatcher Dr


Phase 3 Construction – Thatcher Drive to Sifton Road

  • The former Southwood golf course (UM Lands) is going through the final design and planning stages. The section of University Crescent between Thatcher Drive to Sifton Road is now part of the UM Lands design process and the City will be constructing this section of University Cresc. in 2023. Design details are not yet complete,  but will be posted when they become available.
