The male was found around 10:30 pm and police quickly closed the bridge in both directions until they had completed their investigation on the scene.

Officers removed a bicycle from the bridge and were seen searching the north side embankment close to the scene.

Investigators are asking anyone travelling on the bridge before the incident who may have information or dash-cam footage to contact them at (204) 986-6219.
