March 14, 2014: Walking Path Southwest of the Remai Gallery Construction Site is Now Closed
Access to the Meewasin Trail in River Landing at this location will be closed until further notice due to the Art Gallery construction.
The closure is necessary as the area is needed for temporary construction supports for the 3rd floor gallery building overhang and ground drilling equipment. The supports will create a platform for the structure while it is being assembled and the concrete is curing. This will take at least six months. These supports will then be removed, but the fence will still remain for safety as construction work continues in the area.
Signs will be in place directing trail users to alternate routes.
The Meewasin Trail connections under the Senator Sid Buckwold Bridge and River Landing remain open. Access is also available along the Riverfront pathway. For a map of the area, click here.
