Effective Thursday, May 11 at 7 a.m. the pedestrian pathway connecting Blackfoot Boulevard to the Crossings area will be closed temporarily for earth-moving work on the Métis Trail construction project.
To ensure their safety, students and other pedestrians will be detoured to the pedestrian pathway along Whoop-Up Drive. Students and other pedestrians are advised to allow extra time to arrive at their destinations using the pedestrian detour.
Both high schools in the Crossings area have been notified, and pedestrian detour signs will be clearly posted. Click here to see a detour map
The pathway will reopen on Sunday, May 14 with an all-weather gravel surface that is accessible for those with mobility issues. While this pathway closure is in place, the public is reminded to stay clear of the construction area at all times.
