An aging culvert in West St. Paul is in line to be replaced along Highway 9.
The province and the rural municipality are partnering on the project, as well as on two pedestrian bridges.
“The replacement of the Grassmere Drain culvert at PTH 9 is long overdue and is much needed for the West St. Paul community, as well as all those who commute on Main Street each and every day,” Infrastructure Minister Ron Schuler.
“This project will not only enhance flood protection and improve drainage, but increase public safety.”
The province says the existing culvert is more than 100-years-old.
The design is being finalized and construction is expected to start this summer, with an anticipated completion date of fall 2020. The total project cost is estimated to be $7.6 million.
The costs of bridge designs and construction are being shared by the province and the municipality.
