WINNIPEG — The ongoing construction of the southwest rapid transitway will close northbound and southbound Pembina Highway between Jubilee Avenue and Stafford Street for two weekends this month.
The city says the closures, happening December 7-10 and December 14-17, are to accommodate the demolition of the CN bridge. Both closures will commence at 8 p.m. Friday and continue until 4 a.m. the following Monday.
Construction will take place around-the-clock during both times. Roadway access for Winnipeg Transit and emergency vehicles will be maintained during the closure.
Pedestrian and cyclist access will be maintained by a shuttle service, with two pick-up and drop-off points located:
- North of the underpass on the east side of Pembina Highway opposite Harrow Street, and
- South of the underpass on the east side at the Jubilee Avenue yield onto Pembina Highway.
Motorists should allow additional time to get to their destinations, and use alternate routes such as Osborne Street, Waverley Street or Kenaston Boulevard.
