Construction notice: Southwest Rapid Transit project

August 18, 2016 — 

The City of Winnipeg and Winnipeg Transit are undertaking construction of the portion of the Southwest Rapid Transit project that runs from Pembina Hwy at Southpark Drive, south through Southwood Lands to Investors Group Field.

Access to Southwood Lands will be maintained around the construction zone, but users should take caution in and around the construction area. Pedestrian and bicycle traffic through Southwood Lands (north and south of Markham Rd.) will be slightly impacted throughout construction. Barricades and safety signage will be clearly posted to safely direct all users.

Lane closures along University Crescent have started and should be expected throughout construction. Periodic lane closures can also be expected along Pembina Highway at Southpark Drive and along Markham Rd. Delays should be anticipated and we recommend everyone take caution in these areas.

During event days, the University has been advised that extra precautions and site securement measures will be taken.

The sketch below shows the extent of the construction area and modifications to gates and access through Southwood Lands. Your patience and cooperation to ensure everyone’s safety is appreciated.
