A sidewalk in St.Vital is expected to remain closed until December.

The pedestrian sidewalk on the east side of the St. Vital Bridge will be closed until the end of 2021. The City of Winnipeg says the west sidewalk will remain open to pedestrians. 

"Cyclists should be prepared to share the road or look for alternative routes using the City’s bike map," the city says in a statement.

Temporary pipes will be running along the east sidewalk as the city constructs a new sewer main.

"Replacing sewer mains helps protect our rivers and lakes and is one of the steps the City takes to meet its Environment Act Licence requirements."

Additionally, lanes on the bridge may close as construction continues.
