Ellice Loop Construction
September 19, 2011
Winnipeg Transit will be starting work related to the rapid transit system on our campus by the end of September.
The changes will improve bus traffic for the rapid transit system on Balmoral. Buses will gain a priority light at the Balmoral and Ellice Street intersection.
How will this impact you?
The University's Ellice entrance loop will remain open during most of the construction work. It will be closed for approximately one week to accommodate a new visible cross walk, between the Ellice loop sidewalk and the island for the bus stop.
Once the work is completed, traffic entering the University's Ellice entrance loop will not be allowed to cross directly over to Colony.
The work on the Balmoral and Ellice Street intersection will be done in two phases, the west side first (this will impact The University's Ellice entrance loop) and then the west side.
Construction on this project should be completed by the last week of October.
We will provide further updates as needed.
Thank you for your patience.
