WINNIPEG - The welcomed warm weather means the river levels are going up so the City is closing a portion of the River Walk.
The Assiniboine River walk from the Osborne Bridge to the Main Street Bridge is temporarily closed to pedestrian traffic. Barricades have been installed indicating the walkway is closed.
Light standards along the Assiniboine River walk have also been temporarily removed in order to prevent potential damage from river ice during the spring break-up. This means there will be no lighting along the walk.
The river walk will be re-opened and light standards will be reinstalled when conditions permit.
