Posted: December 2, 2015

Winnipeg, MB – Construction of the Ness Avenue Bridge over Sturgeon Creek will begin December 7. As a result, Ness Avenue between School Road and Valley View Drive will be closed from December 2015 to October 2016. Traffic and transit will be re-routed for the duration of the project.

With a $14 million budget, through this project, the existing Ness Avenue at Sturgeon Creek culvert will be replaced with a new high level bridge with a 75 year lifespan. This will:
improve safety and functionality
prevent roadway flooding
provide bank stability and protect against erosion
improve active transportation through the site
improve surrounding roadways through reconstruction and rehabilitation
