The Winnipeg Police Service says they expect a portion of Lagimodiere Boulevard to be closed for several hours still on Tuesday following a serious collision involving a pedestrian.

At around 6:30 a.m. Tuesday, emergency crews responded to Lagimodeire Boulevard and Maginot Street. 

As a result, southbound Lagimodiere Boulevard is closed at Marion Street. In an update at 10:30 the WPS says "The public is asked to choose an alternate route of travel as southbound road closures are expected to continue in this area." 

The condition of the pedestrian is unknown at this time.

The Traffic Division has taken over and will continue to investigate. Anyone with information can contact investigators at 204-986-7085.
