Summer in Winnipeg can only mean one thing — construction season.

On Thursday, the Manitoba government announced $2.6 million for reconstruction work in the southeast area of the city, including along St. Anne’s Road.

“Southeast Winnipeg is a vibrant, bustling sector in our city with numerous shops, and business, community and recreation centres. Families in this area, like most across the city, are busy and depend on safe, well-maintained roads,” said Local Government Minister Ron Lemieux.

The provincial funding will be cost-shared with the city and target St. Vital, Riel, Seine River, Southdale, St. Boniface and Radisson.

Specific projects include:

  • Park Grove Drive from Chatsworth Place to Beaverhill Boulevard
  • Brentford Road from Meadowood Drive to Wales Avenue
  • Lodgepine Bay at Meadowood Drive
  • Rue des Meurons from Hamel Avenue to Avenue de la Cathedrale
  • Rue des Meurons from Bertrand Street to Hamel Avenue
  • St. Anne’s Road from Fermor Avenue to Lavalee Road
  • St. Mary’s Road from Coniston Street to Lyndale Drive

Construction is expected to start by the end of June.
