Bridge work to cause delays in Winnipeg

WINNIPEG, Man. — Work will begin this weekend on the new Provencher Bridge, and drivers can brace themselves for two years of delays in that area.

Friday evening, the old bridge and the Tache Avenue intersection will be closed, and when it reopens Monday morning it will be reduced to two lanes.

Traffic signals at Tache Ave. will be removed, which the City of Winnipeg says will hopefully minimize delays on Provencher Boulevard.

Drivers are encouraged to use alternate bridges: Main Street; Norwood; Louise; Disraeli; and Redwood are some of their options. For more information about closures and delays, call 204-986-5700.
