Winnipeg motorists are in for a treat on the roads, as the Chief Peguis Trail extension opened Friday. The trail will allow for traffic to flow between Henderson Highway and Lagimodiere Boulevard.

The $109 million roadway was completed a year ahead of schedule and funded by all three levels of government.

The new extension is just over 3.5 kilometres long and will serve approximately 23,000 vehicles every day.

Other aspects of the project include a new underpass at Rothesay Street with sidewalks on both sides with a multi-use pathway underneath, a 3.5-metre multi-use pathway adjacent to the extension for cyclists and pedestrians that connects to other existing trails, and a multi-use pedestrian overpass west of Gateway Road connecting the Chief Peguis multi-use pathway to the Northeast Pioneer Greenway Corridor.
