For those driving in downtown Winnipeg, it wouldn't be a bad idea to make sure they aren't affected by the weekend-long street closure.

The City of Winnipeg has announced that Colony Street will be temporarily closed from Friday to Sunday during scheduled hours.

Northbound Colony Street, between Portage Avenue and Webb Place, including the east sidewalk, will be closed from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. daily starting on Friday, November 10 until Sunday, March 12 for building construction.
