Construction Begins on South District Police Station

Construction is underway on the new 33,000-square-foot South District Police Station.

Watch:

On Friday, Winnipeg Mayor Sam Katz, Councillor Paula Havixbeck and Chief Keith McCaskill declared construction officially underway at the station, located at 2321 Grant Avenue.

The public-private partnership project, pegged at just over $18-million, is expected to be completed by the fall of 2013. It will replace two existing police stations built in the 1950s — District 2 (210 Lyle Street) and District 6 (1350 Pembina Highway).

“This station will enhance the police presence in this quadrant of Winnipeg and provide a new, modern workspace for our police officers, ensuring they have the tools they need to help make our city safer,” Havixbeck said.
