And McGillivray Boulevard, from Pembina Highway to Beaumont Street, will be temporarily closed to traffic starting at 6 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 2, until 11 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 4, for railway crossing repairs.

Motorists are advised to use alternate routes to reach their destinations during these timeframes.
