WINNIPEG - February 26, 2010 - Crews will begin installing limestone rock into the north bank of the Red River at the Disraeli Freeway next week to prepare for the upcoming bridge construction project recently announced by the City.

Work to stabilize the riverbank is scheduled to begin Monday, March 1 and is expected to last until the end of the month. This work needs to be done now as the ground is still frozen.

Trucks and equipment will gain access to the work site from Midwinter Avenue, immediately west of the bridge. While there won’t be any street closures as a result, motorists should be aware that traffic may be required to slow down or come to a stop to allow construction vehicles access to the site.
