Winnipeg’s road construction season is underway.

The City of Winnipeg plans to work on more than 200 construction projects this year, with a $159-million budget to fix roads and active transportation routes.

The city will again devote revenue from two percentage points of this year’s property tax hike to road renewal, along with cash from an accelerated regional street-renewal program that includes funding from the federal and provincial governments.
