What is happening?
In order to complete the final construction work to open the Waverley Underpass, a temporary weekend closure of the project area is necessary that will affect staff, volunteers and visitors to the Winnipeg Humane Society. See the attached Waverley Underpass Construction Update -Temporary Weekend Closure Map for the closure boundaries.
When is the closure happening?
The closure will begin Friday, August 16, 2019 at 5:30PM and end Monday, August 19, 2019 at 6:00AM. During this time the closure area will be closed to all vehicles, and property owners will have access via other routes and access points. The new active transportation path on the east side of Waverley Street will be open for pedestrians and cyclists.
Can I still access the Winnipeg Humane Society during this time?
Yes, the WHS will be accessible for the entire weekend via the east side of Hurst Way coming from Fort Garry and Pembina Highway. This will be the only way to access the shelter on Saturday afternoon and evening as the Hurst Way and Waverley intersection will be shut down for paving. The rest of the weekend, you can access the WHS via Hurst Way, the Sterling Lyon Parkway and Waverley south of Hurst Way, until the Waverley Underpass fully opens on Monday, August 19th at 6:00am.
