As part of the Chief Peguis extension project, Rothesay Street will be closed to vehicle traffic on Monday beginning at 6 a.m.
The street will remain closed from Gilmore Avenue to Donwood Drive until September 2011.
Pedestrians will be given temporary north and southbound access during the closure.
The pedestrian access will accommodate travel on the west side of Rothesay Street for the bulk of the scheduled closure. By mid- to late summer, pedestrian access will move to the east side of Rothesay Street.
A number of Winnipeg Transit routes will be affected during the closure. For a complete list, visit Winnipeg.ca/chiefpeguistrail.
