If you plan on using westbound Whoop-Up Drive on Sunday, you might want to take the Highway 3 route instead.

Bridge maintenance later this weekend will result in some temporary lane closures along Whoop-Up Drive. Effective Sunday, August 13 from 6:00 am to 5:00 pm,  all westbound lanes on Whoop-Up Drive will be closed, and two-way traffic will be set-up in the eastbound lanes to accommodate bridge maintenance. Westbound traffic on Whoop-Up Drive will be detoured to the eastbound lanes at the crossover point west of Scenic Drive and routed back to the westbound lanes at the crossover point located east of University Drive. Traffic from northbound and southbound Scenic Drive will not have access to Whoop-Up during this lane closure. Westbound motorists can expect delays while this closure is in effect and are advised to use Highway 3 as an alternative route to west Lethbridge. During this lane closure, the speed limit along the affected section of Whoop-Up Drive will be reduced to 50 km/h in both directions. Motorists are advised to drive with caution and obey posted signs. - City of Lethbridge
