The rehabilitation of the Osborne Bridge is on time and on budget, the City of Winnipeg says.
Beginning Monday, southbound traffic will be rerouted to the west side of the bridge. At that time there will be two northbound lanes on the east side of the bridge and two southbound lanes on the west side of the bridge. Work will commence in the median portion of the bridge. The west sidewalk will remain closed and pedestrian traffic will be accommodated on the east sidewalk.
The bridge is scheduled to be complete by late October. The rehabilitation will extend its life by up to 75 years with routine maintenance and periodic renewal.
