From July 25 to August 6, 2016, crews are working on:

  • Road base construction on Orr Drive southbound.
  • Constructing concrete curbs on the south side of 67 Street and west side of Orr Drive.
  • The temporary east entrance to Tim Hortons and Mohave Grill will close later this week to allow construction of curbing and road base on Orr Drive.  Detour is via a temporary road located south of 66 Street.
  • Once curbing and road base construction is complete on the west side of Orr Drive, traffic will be redirected to the southbound lanes to allow for construction on the east side of Orr Drive.

  • Temporary right in/out movements from 67 Street to Tim Hortons / Mohave / Ramada will remain open during construction on Orr Drive.
