WINNIPEG – Portage Avenue is back open in both directions in St. James after being closed since the morning drive.
Police say around 7:20 am, an elderly woman was struck by a vehicle and rushed to hospital in critical condition. She is now in unstable condition.
The crash closed Portage Avenue in both directions just west of Route 90, causing long lineups as people slowly re-routed to an under-construction Ness Avenue.
