The City of Winnipeg is preparing to permanently closed a stretch of Springfield Road to accommodate the Chief Peguis Trail extension project.
Beginning Saturday at 6 a.m., Springfield between Dunits Drive and a point west of Spring Valley Road will be closed.
Traffic will be limited to local access only on the following two sections of Springfield Road: Gateway Road to Dunits Drive, and DeVries Avenue to a point west of Spring Valley Road.
Motorists are reminded to allow additional travel time and to use alternate routes.
Construction on the Chief Peguis Trail is expected to continue until mid-November.
