Traffic is expected to slow down as crews wrap up work on the Nancee Way underpass.

For the next three to four weeks, the contractor will complete paving and associated works to move Highway 97 traffic to its final alignment through the Westside Road Interchange Project construction zone.

According to Evelyn Lube, communications for the project, activities that will impact highway traffic are being scheduled during non-peak hours to limit disruptions and inconvenience to the public.

From Oct. 29 to Nov. 12, all lanes of traffic are scheduled to remain open, but motorists should expect traffic pattern changes in both directions, which may result in slower moving traffic. Equipment will also be working between the northbound and southbound lanes.

From Nov. 13 until late November, traffic pattern changes will occur with evening lane closures in both directions to accommodate final paving and associated works. Drivers should expect minor delays and equipment and traffic control workers on site.

Paving operations are subject to appropriate weather conditions, which may result in scheduling adjustments.

The 60 km/h speed limit remains in effect through the construction zone. The public is asked to watch for crews and equipment working on site and obey all traffic signs and traffic control workers.
