Traffic Management Plan
A similar traffic management plan to that successfully implemented in Phase 1 is planned. From late March to late August 2012, there will be two southbound traffic lanes and one northbound lane, except for morning rush hour when one lane will be reversed, making two northbound lanes and one southbound lane.
Pedestrian and Cyclist Access
The east sidewalk over the bridge will stay open throughout construction. Pedestrian and cyclist access and crossings will be clearly signed as they are adjusted during construction.
Pedestrian and cyclist traffic crossing Osborne Street north of the bridge can use the signalized crossing at Broadway Avenue or the underbridge crossing on the north bank of the river, when it is available. In 2011, the underbridge crossing level was raised as high as possible to prevent closing during high water levels of the Assiniboine River. The crossing has a roof for protection from construction debris.
Street-level at Assiniboine Avenue and Mostyn Place is a construction zone, and is unsafe for pedestrians. The signalized crossing for pedestrians and cyclists will be operational once construction concludes and sidewalks are completed.
