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.
WINNIPEG — The city is mulling over the idea of relocating its heliport, used by the Insect Control Branch, to make way for the future expansion of bus rapid transit, ChrisD.ca has learned.
The heliport on Grey Street currently serves as the launching pad for the City of Winnipeg‘s airborne mosquito larviciding operations. Winnipeg police and STARS air ambulance also occasionally use the site.
WINNIPEG — The second stage of the southwest rapid transitway to the University of Manitoba and Investors Group Field is now open to riders.
The first piece of the transitway connects to Pembina Highway adjacent from South Park Drive just north of Markham Road. It has been named Bohemier Trail in honour of the Bohemier family, who moved from Quebec in 1884 and settled in the area.
