Province, city partner on $40-M improvements to infrastructure near Polo Park

  • Print

Greg Selinger announced a major provincial investment in road renewal today, which is intended to improved driving conditions within the Polo Park area.

"These investments in infrastructure will make a difference here," said the premier.

Both the province and the city will be contributing $20 million each to the $40-million project.

In June 2012 the City of Winnipeg announced the sale of the Canad Inns Stadium site. The city planned to invest a minimum of $30 million dollars to improve the congested streets in the Polo Park area. The city stated that $20 million dollars of the total sale price would be fixed towards infrastructure.

According to a release from the province, the scope of work includes:

  • extension of St. Matthews Avenue from St. James to Madison streets;
  • improvements to St. Matthews Avenue between Empress Street and St. James Street; and
  • improvements to the St. James Street/St. Matthews Avenue and St. James Street/Ellice Avenue intersections.
