The Government of Manitoba is cautioning the public about a portion of the South Perimeter (PTH 100) that will be closed this weekend for railway repairs.

Starting Friday, September 23 at 6 p.m. and ending Sunday, September 25 at 6 p.m., the South Perimeter will be closed from St. Anne's Road to Lagimodiere Boulevard for repairs on the railway.

The government is encouraging motorists 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.
