Southwest Manitoba to See Nearly $2M in Highway Upgrades

Manitoba LogoThe Manitoba government will spend nearly an additional $2 million on municipal roads in the southwest part of the province over the next few years.

Part of a larger $50 million investment, repairs and renewal of identified roads will see upgrades over a five-year period.

“The funding being announced today is important because it will not only help tackle the municipal infrastructure deficit, it will have a direct impact on the lives of citizens throughout southwestern Manitoba,” said Doug Dobrowolski, president of the Association of Manitoba Municipalities (AMM).

Funding is being provided to replace or repair 96 kilometres of municipal roads in the southwest. The City of Brandon is receiving $300,000 toward a project to extend Pacific Avenue next year.
