Southwest Rapid Transitway (Stage 2) and Pembina Highway Underpass Project Update

January 21, 2017

Transitway and Active Transportation Crossings in the Vicinity of Bishop Grandin Construction has begun on the Southwest Rapid Transitway (Stage 2) and Pembina Highway Underpass Project.

Part of the project involves the construction of a new Transitway Bridge and a new Active Transportation Bridge over Bishop Grandin Boulevard. These new structures will be constructed adjacent to the existing CN Rail Bridge. Construction will begin in February 2017 and continue until Fall 2018. Construction access to the area will be provided via temporary lane closures along Bishop Grandin Boulevard and via Plaza Drive.

There will be some road restrictions established during this time to protect the public from unsafe interaction with equipment and activities and to provide a safe work environment for construction personnel. Pedestrian access will be maintained, however, normal routes may be altered. For your safety, please respect warning signs, detours and restrictions.

The City of Winnipeg realizes that the construction work may be disruptive and we will endeavor to complete the work as quickly and efficiently as possible.

We thank you for your patience.
