The Manitoba government is funding nearly $65 million in infrastructure projects in Winnipeg this year.
Premier Greg Selinger and Mayor Brian Bowman jointly announced the funding agreement Monday at the corner of Ness Avenue and St. James Street.
“The city’s 2015 budget dedicated $103 million — a record level investment — into Winnipeg’s roads this year,” Bowman said. “I’m pleased that the provincial government continues to contribute to Winnipeg’s infrastructure, which is a top priority for citizens and visitors alike.”
