CentrePort Canada Way will officially open on Friday after years of development.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper will be in Winnipeg for the occasion at Fort Garry Fire Trucks, which relocated to CentrePort. The four-lane divided expressway will serve the 20,000 acre tri-modal inland port, CentrePort Canada, consisting of James Richardson International Airport, a trucking hub and access to three rail carriers.

The provincial and federal governments contributed a total of $212 million to the project to better connect companies in the inland port to key gateways and corridors.

Harper will be joined by CentrePort Canada president and CEO Diane Gray and Premier Greg Selinger.
