WINNIPEG — Continued construction on the McPhillips Street Underpass will see McPhillips converted to a single-lane between Logan Avenue and Jarvis Avenue on Friday.
The one-way, southbound lane will be operating as of 6 p.m. August 3 for several weeks.
“During excavation of the roadway through the underpass, buried elements of the bridge structure were uncovered and found to be in very poor condition requiring immediate repair,” the city said in a release.
“Through consultation with Canadian Pacific Railway (the bridge owner), it was determined that closure of northbound traffic is necessary to allow the railway to complete these unexpected repairs.”
Motorists are advised to use alternate routes, such as Route 90, Keewatin Street, or the Slaw Rebchuk Bridge.
Arlington Bridge has limited capacity and is not recommended as an alternate route and truck operators are reminded that the Arlington Bridge is not a truck route.
Northbound cyclists at the McPhillips Street Underpass are advised to dismount and walk their bike on the sidewalk or to use an alternate route.
