McOrmond Overpass Construction Starts

  • Aug 22, 2017

I’m sure you’ve noticed and I am pleased to report that the McOrmond and College overpass is under construction.  This is a priority project that I have been advocating for during my time on Council, so it is great to see shovels in the ground!

During construction, there will be detours and delays, but proper access into our neighbourhoods is vital.  At all times during the project, there will be two traffic lanes of access from College Drive onto McOrmond Drive to keep vehicles moving.  Also, the lighting of College Drive has already be completed, improving safety on this previously dark stretch of road.  For residents along College Drive who are experiencing excess light in backyards and windows, solutions are being found and I am working closely with City administration to fix the issue.

The new overpass is scheduled to be completed for Fall of 2018 to coincide with the opening of the new North Bridge.  For more information on the new overpass, please visit:
