WINNIPEG — A ribbon-cutting on south Kenaston Boulevard officially opened the Waverley West Arterial Roads Project on Friday.
The transportation link in south Winnipeg extends Kenaston to the Perimeter Highway and includes an overpass where Kenaston and Bishop Grandin Boulevard meet west of Waverley Street.
“Kenaston Boulevard is an essential route, not only for Winnipeggers, but also as a trucking route that has a significant impact on our city’s trade,” Mayor Brian Bowman said.
Pedestrian and active transportation improvements were also made, including connections to the Bishop Grandin Greenway, and new neighbourhoods to the south.
“The improvements made through the Waverley West Arterial Roads Project enhance the flow of this route and make vital connections to emerging residential neighbourhoods.”
The $69.7 million project was cost-shared between all levels of government, with the city contributing $36.5 million of that sum.
