Parts of Lorne Avenue in Portage la Prairie will be blocked off for the foreseeable future. 

Construction workers are milling the road on Lorne Avenue from 3rd Street NE to Tupper Street. While the work is in progress, the street is closed to vehicles. 

PortageOnline has not been provided with a timeline for the project, but workers note things are moving rather quickly. The on-site staff says this is to fill in a sinkhole and a few other noticeable potholes in the area.
