Construction will begin December 14, 2020. The work plan is as follows:


Phase 1 Riverbank Works

Construction start: December 14, 2020

Construction end: April 2021


This work involves, site preparation including tree removal works, stabilization of riverbank along Wellington Crescent from Doncaster Street to Assiniboine Park, outfall works at Park Boulevard and Doncaster Street, and underground utility relocations along Wellington Crescent.

Wellington Crescent will be closed to all traffic during Phase 1. Sidewalks, emergency services access, and access to private approaches will be maintained, as will the east entrance of Assiniboine Park.


Portions of the existing walking and cycling pathway will be closed as construction progresses. A temporary multi-use pathway will be provided for walking and cycling through the area. Please observe and follow detour signage while walking or cycling through the site.
