Three northeast Winnipeg streets are receiving city funding for repairs.
The City of Winnipeg said in a release on Sept. 24 that because of early tendering and competitive construction pricing, it can spend an additional $7.2 million on its Regional Street and Local Street programs.
As a result, southbound Panet Road from just north of Munroe Avenue to Keenleyside Street, Thom Avenue from Bond Street to Day Street, and Dowling Avenue from Bond Street to Day Street will be renewed through the Thin Bituminous Overlay (TBO) program. In all, 13 local streets will receive a combined $1.2 million as part of the program. The city is looking to complete all of the projects by the end of the calendar year, weather permitting.
In all, the city’s Local Street Renewal budget is $35.86 million in 2013, up from $21.65 million in 2012, according to the release.
