The two lanes closest to the median on westbound Portage Avenue from Minto Street to Empress Street will be closed for approximately five weeks beginning January 6, 2015 to accommodate a Manitoba Hydro project.

Vehicular traffic on Portage Avenue will be maintained in the two westbound lanes on the curb side of Portage Avenue. During the closure, diamond lane restrictions in the westbound curb lane of Portage Avenue between Minto Street and Empress Street will be lifted, allowing all traffic to use the curb lane to maximize traffic flow.

Motorists are advised to allow for additional travel time or to use alternate routes in this area to reach their destinations.
