The Manitoba government is spending $4.7 million on road renewal in southwest Winnipeg this year, including the heavily-used McGillivray Boulevard.
Premier Greg Selinger announced Wednesday that $1.1 million will go towards McGillivray rehabilitation work, while the City of Winnipeg will match that amount as a cost-share project.
The road base will be reconstructed then the eastbound lanes from Irene Street to Pembina Highway will be re-asphalted. There will also be some intersection improvements to the southbound turn lane at Pembina Highway.
The other roads getting a piece of the funding pie this year include:
- Mulvey Avenue from Hugo to Cockburn Street North.
- Laval Drive from Pasadena Avenue to McMaster Road.
- Laidlaw Boulevard from Cuthbertson Avenue to Mountbatten Avenue.
- Bryn Mawr Road from Dalhousie Drive to Baylor Avenue.
- Garwood Avenue at Stafford Street.
- Nesbitt Bay from Crescent Drive to Pembina Highway.
- Fleet Avenue from Rockwood Street to Thurso Street.
- Oakfield Place at Fairmont Road.
- Fairmont Road from Oakfield Place to Grant Avenue.
- Rue St. Pierre from Avenue Lemay to Avenue Du Couvent.
- Rue St. Pierre from Avenue Ste. Therese to the south end of Rue St. Pierre.
- Corydon Avenue eastbound from Kenaston Boulevard to Centennial Street.
