The Manitoba Marathon takes place this weekend and they’ll be reversing their route this year. You can expect a lot of traffic. Motorists are advised to detour via Kenaston Boulevard instead of using Pembina Highway.

On Sunday, June 19, from 8:00am until noon access from Pembina Highway onto Jubilee Avenue will be prohibited for both northbound and southbound Pembina Highway traffic. Westbound traffic on Jubilee Avenue will be able to access southbound Pembina Highway, but not northbound Pembina Highway.

From 8:30 a.m. to noon, the intersecting roads along Harrow Street, such as Corydon Avenue, Grant Avenue, and Taylor Avenue will also be impacted. Traffic will be maintained at these intersections by Winnipeg Police Service, however traffic will only be allowed to cross when gaps between runners allow.

From 6:00 p.m. on Friday, June 17 until 6:00 a.m. on Monday, June 20, Waverley Street between Taylor Avenue and Wilkes Avenue will be completely closed to northbound and southbound traffic for routine maintenance of a CN railway crossing. Northbound Waverley Street, from Mathers Avenue to Grant Avenue will also be completely closed to all vehicular traffic

Good luck to all the racers!
