Some commuters had to find a different route home from work on Tuesday or sit longer in the afternoon traffic. 

Just after 5 p.m., Winnipeg TMC took to social media to ask motorists and pedestrians to avoid the 700 block of Toronto Street where the eastbound curb lane and middle lane is closed due to a fire, and expected to cause delays. 

Eastbound curb lane and partial middle lane of Notre Dame is closed due to a fire in the 700 block of Toronto St. Please use alternate routes, and expect delays for eastbound Notre Dame.#Winnipeg #WPGTraffic #WpgTMC
