Members of the public can get a look at drawings of what the replacement for the Arlington Street Bridge could look like Saturday afternoon.
The city issued an invitation to an open house at Rossbrook House at 658 Ross Ave., just blocks away from the rail yards that require a bridge to cross.
Input from public consultations influenced planning decisions for the new bridge, the city said in a news release.
“Through the CPR Yards Crossing Study, the City of Winnipeg is committed to developing a comprehensive plan to ensure pedestrians, cyclists and motorists can move safely and efficiently across the CPR yards.”
The open house runs Saturday, May 19 from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. Find more information about the project at cprcrossing.winnipeg.ca.
