Manitoba Transportation and Infrastructure reports construction will close a portion of the South Perimeter Highway (PTH 100) between St. Anne’s Road and Lagimodiere Boulevard starting Friday, Sept. 23 at 6 p.m. and ending Sunday, Sept. 25 at 6 p.m.

Officials say that the temporary closure is due to railway repairs.

Motorists are encouraged to avoid the area. Motorists looking to bypass Winnipeg should consider using the North Perimeter Highway to avoid delays. For local traffic, a detour using St. Anne’s Road, Bishop Grandin Boulevard and Lagimodiere Boulevard will be in place. Motorists should also consider using other routes such as Fermor Avenue, Dugald Road or other city arterial streets outside the closure area.

Manitoba Transportation and Infrastructure will update impacts to traffic through the Manitoba 511 information system at
