The Manitoba government is spending $200 million to rebuild the southwest quadrant of Winnipeg’s Perimeter Highway.
The five-year plan will include the reconstruction of the Perimeter from the Trans-Canada Highway to Brady Road, a new interstate standard diamond interchange at Highway 3 (McGillivray Boulevard), and engineering work to replace the remaining traffic signals with similar diamond interchanges including a Kenaston Boulevard/Waverley Street interchange.
“The Perimeter has served Winnipeggers well the last 50 years and as our population and economy grows, we will take this highway to the next level to make the most of Manitoba’s central location, which gives us a real edge in North American trade,” said Premier Greg Selinger.
The province will hold open houses next year to provide more details and gauge public input on the projects.
