WEEKEND ROAD CLOSURES
MOTORISTS will have to find alternate routes and allow for extra travel time this weekend due to three separate road closures, the City of Winnipeg warned Friday.
Fort Rouge-area Jubilee Avenue, from Osborne Street to Nassau Street South, will close to east and westbound traffic from 7 a.m. Saturday until 8 p.m. Sunday for paving.
The Arlington Bridge, between Dufferin and Logan avenues, will close at 6 a.m. Saturday and reopen Monday at 6 a.m. Crews need access for bridge maintenance. The bridge pedestrian walkway will remain open.
A stretch of Roblin Boulevard, from Shaftesbury Boulevard to Chalfont Road, will be closed Sunday from 5:30 a.m. until noon for the Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service half-marathon. Access to the Assiniboine Park Zoo will be via westbound lanes on Roblin Boulevard.
A new roundabout at the junction of Highway 2 and Highway 3 will open next week.
